Gills forward frustrated not to take points from Greenhous Meadow

Danny Kedwell felt the Gills deserved to get something more out of the game following the 2-0 loss against Shrewsbury on Saturday.

The striker had an opportunity late in the first half to equalise but struck the post with a well-timed header, and despite having lots of possession and creating more chances after the break, the visitors were unable to find a way through before Shrewsbury grabbed their second to secure victory.

After the game Danny said: “It’s frustrating really, we had our chances in the first half especially with me hitting the post and if we score that we are back in the game.

“We are better than that; they did their job on us and they did well.

“We couldn’t break them down and get that goal; they played deep which we weren’t expecting. I thought we did well first half and I felt we deserved to come in with a draw at least.

“We will keep going, that’s what we have to do. We will need to make sure we work hard on the training pitch and try and get another home win.”

Preston visit MEMS Priestfield Stadium next weekend having also suffered defeat, and Danny believes he and the rest of the squad will make things difficult for them.

He added: “They didn’t win yesterday which is a good thing because they have got to come to our place and playing at Priestfield isn’t easy for any side so we will be confident going in to that game.

“You have to keep working hard, the gaffer tells us to work hard for the team and you get your rewards.”

And finally the striker commented on how he has worked his way up through the leagues and has continued to work hard in preparation for League One Football to prove doubters wrong.

He said: “Every time I do go up people don’t think I can step up but I prove them wrong every time and that’s what I do.

"I’ll keep working hard and you never know what happens in Football.

“You have to believe in yourself that you can keep moving up the ladder to fulfil your dream, I’m doing that now and it’s an incredible feeling.”
