Gillingham's performance against Brentford has given the team belief ahead of Swindon Town clash
Martin Allen believes last weekend’s performance against Brentford can fire them to victory at Swindon.
The Gills boss was thrilled at the way his team battled with a team tipped by many, including himself, to challenge for the League 1 title.
The Gills travel to Swindon on Saturday for what will be another stern test.
Allen said: “We were playing against one of the top teams in the division and we more than matched them.
“It should have given everyone that self-belief that if we play to the top of our game, then we can do well.
“It’s great to get that first point and I am sure for everyone there is an element of relief but I have been fine.
“I know we have good players, they are good lads and I know what they are capable of.
“We were all hurting after the Wolves game (a 4-0 defeat the weekend before) but we kept calm and didn’t panic.”
“I am well aware of the rivalry and on and off the field, I am sure we will do things the right way and do our best to win.
“They were in the play-offs last year and that goes to show what another tough game it will be but we will put on a good show.”
