“It’s not a case of they’re down because the two performances were different – they are pleased with the way we are playing, I’m pleased with the way they are playing and I think the players realise, to have any type of success, we need to be an absolute team.


“We can’t afford too many people to have four out of tens, we need everybody to have at least eight out of tens and then it’s a good team performance and Sheffield United showed that.



“Since I’ve been here we’ve got nine points which is really good and I’m very pleased with that but we want to keep pushing on now.


“There isn’t a lack of confidence because of Monday’s defeat but we know we can do certain things to help us get a result and hopefully we can do that on Saturday.”



Peter said he was equally pleased with the performance against Brackley on Monday evening, but said it was a case of the hosts taking their chance and the Gills failing to take theirs at the other end.



He added: “I’m surprised we are not through to the next round but we didn’t take our chances and that’s why we got beat by Brackley.


"That was a disappointing start to the week but the boys have recovered really well and thankfully there are four or five players that can start tomorrow who couldn’t play Monday so there are fresh legs coming in.


“As a manager you get extremely disappointed with a defeat and extremely disappointed you are not through to the next round because, for clubs of our size, cup runs can really help us.


“I couldn’t honestly look at the performance and work level and not be happy with it. The way they played and the chances we created – we scored a goal that we still think was a good goal although it does look very tight.


“I couldn’t say we played badly and we didn’t try. Things that happen in the FA Cup are strange and we were on the end of a strange result.”

He said: “Danny Kedwell is a doubt but we are still hopeful he has a chance whether he starts or on the bench. We don’t want to take a risk; we need to be sure on that one.


“Steven Gregory is definitely not available and nor is Amine Linganzi – apart from that it’s a full squad.”
