SAMUEL DELIGHTED WITH WIN

20 December 2015

Dominic Samuel believes the resolve of his team-mates was behind the Gills' impressive 3-0 victory against Millwall.

The Reading loanee scored the first and third goals, with a Bradley Dack penalty sandwiched in between, as the Gills secured their first win at The Den since December 2003.


“I would say it was my best performance for the club, but it was a team performance in a hard game,” said Samuel, who was born in Southwark, a short distance away from the south London club's stadium. “It's always a tough game at Millwall, but the boys stuck together and we've come out with a great result.”


Samuel added that his second goal, in which he intercepted a loose back pass from Millwall defender Byron Webster before slotting home from an acute angle, owed much to Barcelona talisman Luis Suarez.


“It's just about anticipating the ball,” he said. “I've been looking at players like Suarez, and that's what the great strikers do, they just keep on going. So I just kept on going!"


“It's been five games since I scored. I needed to get a goal, and I'm glad I got on the scoresheet and that the team got the win.”
