'If It's Football, It's Vital'

A Calming Influence

Peter Taylor has brought about a greater composure to the Gillingham side in his brief stint so far.

That's the view of Danny Kedwell anyway.

Kedwell believes that the "100 mile an hour" approach that was adopted by former Gills boss Martin Allen has been slowed down with Taylor becoming a calming influence on the side with more football being seen.

He told BBC Radio Kent: 'He's got the boys to be more calm on the ball.

'It is not 100 miles an hour as it was with Martin Allen, all guns blazing and running after everything. He is trying to get us to play more football.'

These comments came in the wake of the 2-1 win over Notts County on Tuesday, which gave Taylor his first win since his return to the club.

In fairness it was only his second game back, having lost his opening game (both have been at Priestfield of course) against Preston last Saturday.

The striker feels that even in that Preston defeat we showed glimpses of what we could potentially do with this seen fully in the win over County, adding: 'There were a couple of glimpses of that on Saturday and much more on Tuesday.

'We all know our jobs and what we want to do with the ball. It's not two or three jobs, like in the last couple of months.

'It will take time obviously but we played some great football against Notts County. He is going to get the best out of us, I think.'

A new manager almost always gets something, in the immediate terms anyway, from his players if Taylor proves to be the right man in place of Allen only time will tell.

Football is a team game, you should cover each other but perhaps sometimes you have to know when to say enough is enough and perhaps too much energy was being exerted by the likes of Kedwell by constantly chasing back here there and everywhere...
