Gillingham manager Martin Allen pleased players have taken to his stance on club discipline
Gillingham emerged from a feisty promotion battle against Port
Vale on Saturday without a booking to their name.
And that level headedness is something boss Martin Allen and his
management team have been working hard at to achieve.
"We worked on that from day one in pre-season," said Allen,
"It’s at the training ground, here at home and everywhere we go.
You have to praise our players’ behaviour and conduct on and off
"They all work hard to try and make themselves better
individually and work hard to get better as a team. They all
recognise that discipline, conduct and how you behave is all part
of having a discipline to be successful."
No player has received a ban for excessive yellow cards
this term and a flurry of red cards earlier in the season have
also dried up.
"A few of our young players have been sent off for what I would
say were over-exuberant challenges, but not nasty," said Allen.
"There have been few dissents to the referee. We haven’t got any
bad apples. They work hard together and support each other and I am
proud of how they have conducted themselves."
