Peter Taylor still thinks his side will need to secure up to another five points to guarantee a place in Sky Bet League One next season

Gills manager Peter Taylor thinks his side need another four or five points to secure League One safety.

The Gills currently sit in 14th position, eight points above the relegation zone, in their first season back in Sky Bet League One.

Taylor is hoping the Gills can secure safety sooner rather than later, with victory over Rotherham likely to be enough to stay up.

Speaking exclusively to the club’s official website he said: “I wouldn’t mind sleeping at night to be honest with you, so I wouldn’t mind getting to 51 points a bit sharpish and then we can go from there.

“Notts County have won their last three matches, so you can never rest. I still think we need another four or five points.

“I want us to show a bit of consistency in the way that we can play and if we do that we are a match for any team.”

Taylor was asked if he is likely to adopt the same 4-2-3-1 formation which was enough to clinch a 1-0 win over MK Dons last Tuesday.

He said: “You have to take into account the systems other teams play. Rotherham are more 4-4-2 and teams that play formation do it with lots of movement from the wide players, they come of the line and make extra bodies in midfield and I think that midfield area is a very important area.”

The Gills go in to the game with one defeat in their last five outings. The visitors are the in-form team in League One and haven’t tasted defeat since their New Year’s Day loss to Coventry City.
