Gills boss Peter Taylor says the players are eager to achieve a positive result this weekend at Notts County

Gills Manager Peter Taylor says the players are determined to bounce back against Notts County this weekend.

The players travel to Meadow Lane looking to record their first victory on the road in League One this season, and the Manager says the players have responded well to the result at Bramall Lane.

He said: “Very positive, it’s always disappointing to get nothing after leading with a few minutes to go but that’s what’s happened, we ended up with nothing after a good afternoon’s work.

“They are a determined bunch, they want to get things right and hopefully we will respond and bounce back.”

Goalkeeper Stuart Nelson returned to action earlier in the week as part of the development squad that played against Luton, however the Manager isn’t persuaded to rush him back into first team action.

He said: “Stuart’s done great, he played in the development game at Luton – we lost 5-2 but Mark Patterson said he was absolutely outstanding all day regarding attitude and performance.

“He probably won’t be involved this weekend as much as he would like to be but at the moment that won’t be the case. We’ve then got Colchester and Scunthorpe so I’m sure he will be pushing hard for one of those.”

Striker Luke Norris is pushing for a start following his brilliant strike against the Blades, and Peter says there is more to come from the centre forward.

He added: “It was a fantastic goal because when he first received the ball he did with his back to goal. He hits a dipping volley and those are the things we see in training quite a lot.

“Luke is a young player now involved in a first team at a club, there is still a lot more in the tank and I’ve driven people mad saying what a good finisher he is but I’m hopeful his goal will help his confidence even more.”
