Peter Taylor wants three points on the board as soon as possible as Gills prepare for back to back home fixtures

Peter Taylor believes the sooner his players get a win under their belts the more it will relax the squad as the season run in approaches.

Gills go in to tomorrow’s game against Crawley having lost their last three games, but Peter said this just outlines how tough the league is and is expecting another stern test when John Gregory’s side visit Priestfield at the weekend.

Speaking to the club website he said: “Our next two matches are at Priestfield so we are desperate to get back to winning ways at home, if we could go and win all our home matches that would be fantastic but we know that isn’t going to be easy.

“We are capable and we are looking to reproduce how we played here with the urgency, quality and tempo we had against teams like Wolves and Swindon.

Peterborough was a good performance aswell so if we can repeat that I would hope we will be getting more points on the board.

Bristol City I didn’t like us for the first half but after that I thought we done alright.

“Players are players, they don’t worry about the importance of everything, they just get on with it and they have a good team spirit which is the most important thing.

“I don’t want them being quiet; I want them being noisy and have a good spirit, which they’ve got, as I want them to be really at it at three o’clock on Saturday.

“With the change in the weather it has given the chance to prepare a little bit better.”

Peter was asked if he envisaged the bottom of the table being as close as it currently is.

He said: “I think so, it’s the toughness of the league - teams fight back and show good character – it will be tight from now until the end of the season.

“The quicker we can get a win I think that will relax the players a touch.”
