Gillingham captain Adam Barrett insists his side are not putting their feet up now automatic promotion is already secured.

The Gills made sure of a top-three finish last weekend and could have clinched the League Two trophy with a draw at promotion-chasing Cheltenham on Saturday, only to fall to a 1-0 defeat which ended the Kent club's 14-match unbeaten run on the road.

They face AFC Wimbledon at Priestfield this weekend before a final-day trip to Burton - needing just a solitary point to finally seal top spot.

Barrett told the club's official website: "We are disappointed of course because a draw would have clinched the title for us, but we now dust ourselves off and it will be nice to do it at home against Wimbledon and we will be fully prepared for that one.

"We want to win the title and we are disappointed, we had a fantastic turnout (1,449 travelling fans at Whaddon Road) but we are not resting on our laurels. We have done the main part and got promotion but there is a lot of ambition out there and a lot of hunger and you don't get an opportunity like this coming around very often.

"Some people never get it in their careers and we need to make sure we prepare properly, which we will do and the gaffer will make sure we are bang on it and we come in and train hard."
