Gills goal scorer adamant the team did enough to deserve a result at Meadow Lane

Bradley Dack said he thought the Gills were unlucky not to take anything away from Notts County after a 3-1 defeat at Meadow Lane on Saturday.

Dack grabbed the Gills equaliser following Callum McGregor’s opener in the first half shortly after the break, but McGregor got on the score sheet again before Jack Grealish clinched maximum points with a few minutes left to play.

Dack struck the woodwork twice as the visitors looked to get their noses in front and then level the game up, but the hosts were able to resist the pressure and seal their first win since Shaun Derry took over as Manager.

Following the match Dack said: “It felt great to get the goal but I should have had a couple more - we were unlucky today not to win.

“We had a couple of chances and a few off the line so it’s not a good feeling going home when we know we should have come away from the game with something.

“It’s disappointing because at the end of the day we didn’t win the game and we definitely should have taken something, if not three points then at least a draw.

“It’s a bitter pill to swallow.”

Jake Hessenthaler partnered Dack in midfield, and having played with the youngster in the youth team a few years ago, Bradley was delighted to see Jake make his full debut.

He said: “We’ve played for a few years together now and it was great to see him in there and he’s done himself no harm, he did really well and kept the ball for us.

“He only came off because we were behind in the game and needed a goal. He’s a top player, he reads the game well and his passing sticks out. He is calm under pressure.”
