Assistant manager Paul Bodin insists it is key that Port Vale impose their style of play on Gillingham this weekend.
The Gills suffered a disappointing loss to Walsall in midweek but Bodin is expecting a tough test in Kent nonetheless.
Speaking to Valiant PlayerHD, he said: “They’re saying that they’re going for automatic promotion so they’re still looking for second spot.
“They’ve had a couple of blips of late but they are a very, very good team as we saw here earlier in the season.
“They’ve got Dack back who has been out injured for quite a while and he’s an important player for them so it’s important that we impose ourselves on them.
“We know it’s a tough game but it’s still a time when players are trying to impose themselves and look for contracts for next season.”
