Martin Allen is relaxed as his Gillingham side wait for their first win of the season following a 0-0 draw with Bristol City.
City travelled to Priestfield for the second time in a month having beaten the Gills 2-0 in the first round of the Capital One Cup, but history was not to be repeated.
Gillingham capitalised on a fast start when Adebayo Akinfenwa glanced a giant throw from Charlie Lee past goalkeeper Frank Fielding in the 22nd minute.
But City hit back on the stroke of half-time and grabbed an equaliser through Marvin Elliott, who powered home a trademark header from a pin-point Scott Wagstaff delivery.
Unlike City, Gillingham have not won a game at all this term, but boss Allen was quick to state that the season had only just started.
"I thought we were outstanding in the first half," Allen said.
"We had a tricky five minutes just before half-time, but apart from that, I thought we played superbly well.
"We've put in some good performances, we were superb against Brentford, last week at Swindon we were better than them for the majority, and we were unlucky to lose against Colchester.
"Obviously Bristol City came into it in the second half, yet we defended as a team. It was important that we kept our discipline and kept on believing and we stuck at it.
"People on the outside, who are they? It's another point on our board and we've played some big clubs already. It's a long competition - it's 10 months, not 10 minutes, and we're doing alright.
"It's a good point against a good team, and we have to be happy.
"I'm happy with the last three games, but we cannot settle for what we've got. We've got to keep on improving."
