The Boro boss could not have asked more of his players as they battled back from behind three times in the second-half to salvage a last-gasp 3-3 draw at third-placed Metropolitan Police on Saturday.
Gale says his troops have been shifting through the gears in recent weeks in terms of performance levels, although it hasn't necessarily translated in terms of results.
Gosport have collected four points from a possible 12 from their previous four league outings but do head to Hendon on the back of a draw and victory. And Gale is hoping his men can replicate their recent performances and move back into the play-off places with a midweek win.
‘We’ve got to now perform at Hendon how we performed on Saturday. That’s the challenge for the lads, they’ve got to perform as well as they have,' said Gale.
‘I go back to our last three or four games, our performance levels have gone up levels. The Hayes & Yeading game, we got beat, but the performance was good, the performance was good at Poole - the performances are there.
‘If you’ve got nine or 10 players performing then you’ve got a chance, we’ve got that at the moment, but we’ve got to keep that momentum and keep people fit, that’s the challenge really.’
With just two of their top-eight rivals in action tomorrow night, eighth-placed Gosport know a win at Hendon will take them back into the play-off places.
Central midfield pair Mike Carter and Luke Hallett failed to shake off knocks in time to face Met Police at the weekend - and they are both doubts for the trip to Hendon.
Attacker Bradley Tarbuck is facing a spell on the sidelines after pulling up with a hamstring issue on Saturday. But Dulwich Hamlet loanee winger AJ Harris-Sealy is pushing for a start after coming off the bench to net at Met Police.
