WESTON: PLAYERS HAPPY TO ADAPT

27 October 2013

Myles Weston says the players are more than willing to adjust style of play to try and win more games

Gills winger Myles Weston says adapting to Peter Taylor’s new style of play will take time, but felt the team deserved more from the game against Port Vale after a good performance.


The visitors were defeated 2-1 on the day, but having been ahead at the interval the end result was disappointing for the players.


He said: “In the first half we looked quite comfortable so it’s a bit disappointing to lose the game.


“We played with a new formation, 4-3-3 and then 4-4-1-1 but we have adapted well, passed it well and getting used to the way the gaffer wants to do things.


“I still think we had chances in the second half but we conceded a quick goal, gave them the early momentum and then they got another so if we hadn’t of done that I think the result would have definitely been different.


“Even though we lost I thought, in spells, we put in a good performance and played well.


“It won’t happen straight away, we need to work out things and we haven’t had a proper week with him yet.


"We have done a couple of bits but hopefully this week the gaffer can do what he wants to do for the Carlisle game.


“We’re not kicking it as much, we are playing a lot more Football which the team likes and everyone is up for learning the way he wants us to play which is good.”


Myles revealed that Taylor wants him to play on the right side of midfield more often, and the former Brentford man said that the Manager has offered to help in any way he can to get the best out of him.


He said: “I’m always up for learning, the new Manager has different ideas and I’ve liked everything he has done so far and on Tuesday winning it was a big boost, but I think I’m playing much better anyway.


 “He said he can help me with certain things in the system he wants and I’m up for learning. He is telling me what to do defensively and going forward so I’m happy.


“Even scoring and getting in to good positions; he has a way of doing things so we will see what happens.


“It’s enjoyable definitely because I get the ball a lot more and further up the pitch so I don’t have to run from deep.”
