“It’s a disappointing result but I’m not down about the performance. We did everything but stick it in the net. I thought the goal was coming for us, but we let the cross in too easily and they scored.”

“The lads are down, obviously, but we had the majority of shots and should’ve got something. Bayo, Scotty, Jase, Paris, Tys have all had chances but I think they scored with their only real chance.” br>
"How we haven't got something out of that game, I am amazed. We created plenty of chances and we had some great chances in both halves but Gillingham took their one chance and put it in.

"We very rarely draw a blank and a clean sheet would have been great. It would have been a decent point, but a frustrating one as we dominated. We have to take defeat on the chin but on the whole I am pleased with the performance and we have to take that into next week now."

"If we weren't creating any chances from open play, it would be a worry. Their keeper (Tomas Holy) made some world class saves but we have to take our chances when we are on top. We will create chances and we will score goals. Gillingham are fighting for their lives and they have won the game so you have to give them credit."
