Striker says the squad are in good hands and are in high spirits ahead of Saturday's game at Walsall.
Tom Nichols spoke to the media ahead of the Gills travelling to Walsall this weekend, as the squad prepares to face Mat Sadler’s side in Sky Bet League Two.
Having made his 450th senior career appearance midweek, Nichols spoke of the feeling in the camp, adapting to playing under Keith Millen, and what the team can expect to come up against in the midlands come 3pm on Saturday.
On playing under Keith Millen:
"There’s a lot of detail going into the player’s heads, we’ve got a good, professional group here so we’re just getting on with things and looking ahead. Business as usual.
“It’s happened a few times in my career where the manager has changed mid-season, so it’s nothing new to me. Morale is really good amongst the players; we’re just focused on the next game and moving up the table.
“Keith is hugely experienced in the game.
"He’s been in this position six or seven times before, so it’s nothing new to him either. He’s got a wealth of experience so he’s passing that on to the players, we’re in good hands as a squad for sure."
On defeat in Portsmouth:
“It was a shame about the result, but I think there’s a lot of positives we can take from that game. We played really well in that first-half, plus there were some first-team debuts.
“They’re obviously at the top of League One, so they’ve got a very strong squad. We knew it was always going to be tough going there, but I think we gave a good account of ourselves.”
Looking to Walsall:
“It’s a hard place to go.
"We’ll be going there with confidence at the weekend, we may have lost the game midweek but we’re in a good place. We’ll go there to win."
