Manager Steve Lovell wants to give Gills’ home crowd plenty to shout about against Plymouth.
Gillingham have won only six of their 21 League 1 games at Priestfield this season but know victory over the Pilgrims tomorrow (Good Friday) would virtually guarantee survival.
There’s no bigger incentive to put on a show and get last weekend’s 2-0 home defeat by Shrewsbury out of their system.
Lovell said: “The home form has bothered me because we’re not getting the results we should get and that’s the way it’s gone this year.
“Away from home we’ve performed very well but at home we’ve lost a lot of games through fault of our own.
“Winning games gets people through the turnstiles, and it should do, but it’s about the way you win games as well.
“You want to win in the right way but at the moment it’s all about getting points on the board.
“No one goes out there with the intention of not playing very well. You perform well and the fans are going to get behind you and they’ve been brilliant this year.
“When the Rainham End’s rocking there’s no better place but you’ve got to give them something to cheer about, haven’t you?
“That’s something we’ve got to be mindful of between now and the end of the season.
“We’ve got two home games left, a big one on Friday against Plymouth and an even bigger one against Charlton.
"It would be lovely to finish off and give them something to shout about because they deserve it.”
Regan Charles Cook is back in training but Gills are waiting on Leo Da Silva Lopes who missed the Shrews defeat through illness and didn’t train at the start of the week.
