Cody McDonald says Gills can take a lot of encouragement from Saturday's match against Notts County, despite losing 1-0 at Meadow Lane

Cody McDonald says a repeat of the performance against Notts County in future away matches should start to produce positive results.

Gillingham were unlucky not to get at least a point from Meadow Lane after a strong display on Saturday resulted in a 1-0 defeat, and the striker conceded it was frustrating that they couldn’t find a way through.

He said: “It’s a bit of a contrast to last week [at Sheffield United], today it was us putting the pressure on and creating chances – we played well but just couldn’t score and that’s obviously the frustrating thing for us and the Manager.

“If we perform like that away from home most times then we will be alright.

“Going forward we were good, I thought defensively we were decent but we just lacked concentration with the goal.

“We can’t keep saying we need to take the positives, we’ve got to start doing it – myself included. It’s coming but we need to do it sooner rather than later, our luck has got to change at some stage.”

As for his own performances so far this season, Cody is adamant the goals will keep coming if he continues to get himself into the right areas.

He added: “Sometimes you get one chance in a game and you take it. Other times you get a couple like today and they don’t go in.

“I’ll keep plugging away and hopefully on Tuesday night one of them will hit the back of the net.

“I only had three goals up until Christmas last year and I ended up with 17. I feel like I’m playing well, I was happy with the way I played today but it just didn’t go for me in front of goal.

“If I perform like that most weeks then I think the goals will definitely come.”
