Port Vale: Big guns face battle, warns Gills skipper
PORT Vale have been warned they face an almighty scrap to take top spot in League Two.
The Valiants travel to the Priestfield Stadium tomorrow looking to return to the summit - a position they held briefly over Christmas.
But Gillingham captain Adam Barrett says his own team, who quickly regained the leadership they have held since day one, willl fight all the way to keep themselves out in front.
"We don't want Port Vale coming to our ground and taking top spot, so we'll be fighting tooth and nail," he told Kent online. "We will be organised and prepared.

"They want to go top again but to do that they will have to beat us. Hopefully, that will suit us."
It's a case of the irresistible force against the immovable object, as the best attack in the division - Vale have scored 54 times in the league so far - go up against the best defence - Gillingham have conceded just 21 goals.
And Barrett is confident his side can produce a repeat of the performance that earned them a 2-0 win at Vale Park back in September.
"When we went down their place earlier in the season, everybody was raving about how many goals they had scored and we kept them out that day and won the game," he said.
"We have nothing to fear. They have some good players and we respect that but we are confident in how we set up and what we do, and we have the best defensive record in the league."
