Three Points Fantastic For The Club And The Fans

Gillingham reacted to the midweek defeat by getting back to winning ways with a 2-1 win over Carlisle on Saturday.

The Gills hadn't won at Brunton Park in 20-years but they managed this with another hard working display as they moved closer to league one safety.

Winning away from Priestfield was something that Peter Taylor had spoken to his side about ahead of the game and the win was something he credited to the fans and the club with him happy with how Carlisle chances were limited.

The Gills boss said: 'We had a really good chat at lunchtime and I spoke to the players about the importance of getting some away wins. This was the perfect place to get it and I'm delighted for our fans--three points is fantastic for the club and the fans.

'Until we are guaranteed League One survival at least we will carry on working extremely hard and there won't be days off for the players.

'Carlisle put us under a lot of pressure and were a threat. But we restricted them to few chances.'

Taylor went on to pay particular praise to match winner Cody McDonald, who struck his 13th goal of the season including his seventh goal in as many games, and Joe Pigott who scored his first goal since joining the club on loan.

He added: 'He looks quick over 10 yards and he doesn't give opposing centre-halves any time. He is playing regularly and enjoying himself and he has been in fantastic form, but he's not just a goalscorer and he's doing a great job for us.

'I like the way Cody took his goal, but he worked his socks off all afternoon. I think the defenders were nervous of him.

'He's (Pigott) a good finisher and he showed it with that goal.'

This site is looking for an editor (at least contributor), so if a fan can offer us a genuine opinion from someone that supports them we would love to share it with the masses!
