Taylor: We've All Had A Big Test

Taylor: We've All Had A Big Test

The league one season move into it's penultimate round over the weekend with Gillingham in action away for the last time in the current campaign.

Gillingham's last away game of the season ended in a 3-1 defeat at Preston North End on Saturday.

In spite of that Deepdale defeat league one safety has been assured Peter Taylor was relieved that safety had been assured and thought that his side played well enough against a side battling hard for promotion.

The Gills boss told the media: 'That feels great and I think that the players have worked exceptionally hard.

'We lost today but we played a very good team and there were some good spells from us. There were some bad ones too. But the main objective was to stay in the division.'

Preston went ahead though John Welsh but a Cody McDonald goal brought Gillingham level before two quick goals from Paul Gallagher and Neil Kilkenny secured Preston the points and took them up to third with the Gills in 16th, but safe.

When Taylor arrived his objective was to keep Gillingham in league two, he managed this but is still targeting a win to finish but thinks the players deserve credit even if they have been 'inconsistent' at times.

He added: 'We've all had a big test. I'm sure we can be better next season and hopefully we can improve on things that weren't so good.

'The objective was to make sure we stayed in the division. We still can get 55 points and pick up a place or two. The players deserve a lot of credit. I know they've been inconsistent but that's not deliberate.'
