Gillingham manager Neil Harris has admitted he feared the sack when the team hit rock bottom in League 2 - but is loving the club’s revival.

Harris always knew a takeover was on the cards but was reliant on a patient hierarchy at the club to retain him as manager. He’s had the chance to rebuild with fresh investment and has quickly turned things around.

Gillingham are averaging two points a game since the mid-January reshuffle - form that over a season would leave them challenging for the title rather than fending off relegation.

When they lost 1-0 at Stevenage on January 2 - before they could make moves in the transfer window - the Gills were rock bottom with 14 points from 23 matches - the halfway point of the season - with just seven goals scored.
