Gills forward disappointed not to get a result but encouraged by strong display at Griffin Park

Craig Fagan said he felt the team gave a good account of themselves and were unlucky not to get a point in the game against Brentford on Friday evening.

Fagan, who has signed a fresh contract which keeps him at the club until the end of the season, started the match at Griffin Park which the Bees won 2-1, but the former Premiership forward said there were far more positives to take from the game than negatives.

Speaking after the game he revealed what the main emotion was in the dressing room following the final whistle.

He said: “Slight disappointment, everyone in the changing room is disappointed with the result as we felt we could have ended up getting something out of the game.

“They are up there and rightly so, they are a good team but we felt we gave them a good test and nearly got a point.

“A lot of people might have looked at where we are and said it’s a banker three points for Brentford but I felt we gave a good account of ourselves.

“You have seen a difference in the team over the last four or five games and everyone is starting to understand how the gaffer wants the team to play the game and it’s starting to show a lot more - we were unlucky not to get a point.

“I know how the Manager is and he likes to get things done on the training ground making sure players understand how he plays but when you cross the line it’s up to us as players to put that in to practice.

“Week by week it’s got better and with the results we have picked up lately it has shown.”

Craig revealed he is very happy to remain at MEMS Priestfield Stadium until the end of the campaign, and says everyone at the club has been very welcoming.

He said: “I’m here until the end of the season and the team is progressing and it’s nice to be a part of that.

“Everyone was very welcoming – the players and people around the ground so it’s good to be involved at the club and pass on my experience to the younger lads.

"I’ve enjoyed it and hopefully I’ll get among the goals and I’ll be trying to do that.”
