Andy Hessenthaler says the 2-0 victory over Torquay could reignite Gillingham's play-off push after going seven games without a win.
Hessenthaler's men have fallen out of the top seven following a terrible set of results but they made amends against the Gulls.
Despite Danny Stevens hitting the post early on, Gillingham created the better chances and took the lead after 51 minutes with Simon King's first goal in three years. Danny Kedwell then netted in injury time from the penalty spot after Joe Oastler was dismissed for a foul on Gavin Tomlin and Hessenthaler says no-one will fancy playing the Gills from now on.
"It was a massive win," he said. "I felt that performance and result had been coming. We deserved more than we got from our last few performances so it was good to get that three points when you deserve it.
"We are not going to give up on the play-offs, just because we didn't get a win for a while and had a bad spell it doesn't mean we've forgotten about it. We will stay positive.
"People can write us off and maybe people were looking forward to playing us but not now. I think we are a dangerous side and we will kick-on from here."
