Gills winger confident home form will improve soon...

Myles Weston says he and the squad are looking forward to putting things right when Northampton visit MEMS Priestfield tomorrow evening.

The winger came on as a substitute in the 1-1 draw with York on Saturday, and although the team narrowly missed out on taking all three points, he is convinced the club will find their winning touch at home soon.

He said: “The gaffer told me to warm up five minutes before that but I was ready, happy to come on and wanted to enjoy the game and do my best for the team.

“We knew before the game if we won we would have gone top so it would have been nice to do that but it still showed the desire we had to come from 1-0 down to get a draw.

“It’s not the best result but it’s better than no points.

“At the beginning of the season our home form was good – it’s quite hard to figure out what is going wrong at the moment. I don’t think we are playing badly; the results just aren’t going for us.

“We are still playing good football but the end result just isn’t the one we want.

“From getting the draw here I’m looking forward to putting things right and getting a win at home and giving the fans something to cheer about. Our home form isn’t the best but it’s coming and the sooner the better.”

It was Weston’s cross that allowed Cody McDonald to score on his second debut for the club with a far post header, and the former Brentford man is hoping they can form a strong partnership as the Gills look to return to the top.

He added: “I wasn’t here when Cody was here but I have heard good things about him. I’m a winger and he’s a striker and I hear he’s good at getting on the end of crosses so hopefully we can have a good combination together and I can give him as much ammunition as possible.

“You can tell he has the attributes to be a top striker, hopefully he can score a lot of goals for us to win us the league. In training he is sharp and bright and he’ll be good for us.

“He only came in on Tuesday but you could tell he has the fight and wants to do well. We welcome him here; we need as many players as possible if we’re going to get promoted.

“Port Vale have a strong squad, ours is too and Cody is a good addition and will just make us better.”

Myles went on to praise the fans before looking ahead to tonight’s game at home to Northampton.

He said: “They have been great for us; they give us the support we need even though it isn’t going right for us. To pay them we need to win at home and all of the players are enthusiastic to get the win and I think it’s coming very soon.

“They [Northampton] are a long ball team and very organised so it will be a difficult game for us, we need to be on our top game to win and hopefully we can get the three points.”
