Gillingham boss Steve Lovell praised his backroom team for helping to get his team fighting fit.
Midfielder Dean Parrett starred in the 2-0 win over Scunthorpe, scoring one and having a hand in the other, while Mark Byrne’s energy also drew praise from the manager.
Lovell praised his team’s tireless work after last week’s win.
The manager said: “The fitness of the boys was tremendous and all credit to our fitness coach James Russell and (physio) Gary Hemens for getting them into this shape to allow me to coach them and train them the way I can.”
Parrett was Gills’ player-of-the-match and Lovell said: “Dean has had his ups and downs this season with injuries.
“I signed him in the summer because I knew what a good footballer he is. He showed that we need people like that in the team.
“He can score goals from that more attacking midfield role that he’s got, with DJ sitting in behind him. Mark Byrne, he’s got Duracell in his body, because in the last minute he’s run 70 yards with the ball into the corner flag.
“We kept going and kept producing the chances. It’s very pleasing the way that we played and I’m delighted to have got those three points.”
