Late goal deprives Gills of point but Peter takes the positives from strong display

Peter Taylor said it was frustrating to concede a goal right at the death against Leyton Orient, but said he had to be pleased with the overall effort and the performance put in by his players.

Substitute Yohann Lasimant headed in from close range in second half injury time to snatch the winner in a 2-1 victory for Russell Slade’s men, and Peter described his emotions after the game.

He said: “Very frustrated, a very late goal and a bad goal on our part. I’ve spoken to Stuart about it; he had a terrific game and felt he was fouled.

“I need to see the replay of that but to concede so late is very frustrating. It isn’t the first time it has happened so we are bit disappointed with that but overall we created a lot of chances.

“We’ve got to learn and make sure we take our chances, when you are playing against a top team in the division and put in a good account of yourselves I have to be pleased with that, but of course the final bit is very disappointing.

“We deserved to score early on, I think we were very positive from the first second and it was a good goal from Bayo. We had a good start and again at the start of the second half, we had a good chance with Cody went he went through.

“If that goes in I’m sure it’s a different situation.

“As long as they keep creating chances for themselves then, in the end, they will go in and they’ll get confidence from that. They will be frustrated but some of the combination play was good.”
