Defender Deji Oshilaja insists the Gills team are united.
Gillingham have just two games left of the season and have yet to secure their League 1 status but Oshilaja is confident that they will do the job.
He said: “We are a strong group and we stick together. Everyone helps each other out and the senior lads help the younger ones out.
“In the last few games we have been getting the ball down and believing in ourselves and when you do that you can see how good we are. We have to make sure we do what we can to get out of it.
“We always believe we can pick up points and we will stay in this league. We just need to go out there and do it now.
“You have to believe, if you don’t then there is no point being in the business.”
Osjilaja is on loan from Cardiff City – in his second season with the Gills – and he’s learnt plenty in his time at the club.
He said: “This (a relegation battle) is not something that any player wants to be involved in but it is where we are.
"Last season we were fighting for promotion and this season it’s relegation. I am learning both sides. It is a tough challenge but I am enjoying it at the same time.
“We have enough quality that we won’t be relegated but we have to go and do the business.”
