Attacking midfielder Bradley Dack reflects on Tuesday night's cup tie with Bristol CityGillingham ended their Capital One Cup campaign with a 0-2 loss to Bristol City on Tuesday evening and speaking after the game, young midfielder Bradley Dack gave us his view of the performance, “It was a good game to be fair and I thought we played really well, in parts.
“Obviously they were decent at keeping the ball but I thought we pressed them well and I think we created more chances then them but the ball didn’t go in the goal.
“They like to move the ball around and use that defensive midfielder, Marlon Pack. Everything goes through him but when we got tight to him and their players, they didn’t play.”
The team haven’t managed to find the net in their first two competitive fixtures of the season but Bradley is adamant that the goals will flow soon, adding “It’s a fine line, we’re creating chances and it will definitely come.
“Like the gaffer says there are goals in the team everywhere, from Cody, Keds, Bayo, German, then in midfield you’ve got Whelps, who scores goals, and myself.
“So there are goals in the team and we’re creating chances, it’s just putting the ball in the goal but that will come. It’s a long season, 46 games so I’m sure we’ll start winning soon.”
A major disappointment on Tuesday was the news that right-back Matt Fish faces a spell on the sidelines with a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament but Dacky know his team mates will keep his spirits up, adding, “It’s a small squad and a tight knit squad and touch wood we don’t get many injuries.
“It’s not nice to see but that’s football and it happens. We’ve just all got to get behind Fishy now and hopefully it will all be alright. We need to get him back as soon as possible and hopefully he’ll play again before the end of the season.
“I know from my own injury last season that everyone at the club will be as good as gold. Matt will still be involved with all the banter, the staff and players will keep everything light-hearted and hopefully the physios will get him back as quick as possible.”
Finally the Gills face a glamour trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers this Saturday and Bradley admits he can’t wait to take on the Midlands giants, “They are a massive club and it’s going to be a good feeling to go out there and play against Wolves.
“They’ve got some top players, some players that have played in the Premiership, so it will be a tough test. It will show us where we’re at and how good we are, ability wise, and hopefully we can go there and take some points off them.
“We’ve just got to turn up, play our football and get in their faces. If we play the way that we do I think we’ll create chances, we’ve got goals in the team so who knows what could happen. Regardless of expectation we’ll go into the game thinking we can win it.”
