Gills Manager happy with work ethic following 1-1 draw at Crabble

Justin Edinburgh said his side got `a good workout` following the 1-1 draw with Dover at Crabble on Saturday.

Brennan Dickenson’s second minute strike was cancelled out by Ricky Miller who beat Glenn Morris before the interval.

The second half was competitive but neither side could find a way through to claim a winner.

Following the game Justin said: “I thought we started the game really well, took control but credit to Dover because they are a physically strong side and made a real battle of it.

“After we gave a sloppy goal away it gave them incentive and perhaps it took us a bit too long to overcome that.

“We spoke about things at half time and I was pleased with the response.

“In the second half I thought we did better in terms of first and second balls.

“It was a little bit contrasting but overall it was a tough workout against a well organised side who I’m sure will do well in the Conference next year.”

Adedeji Oshilaja made his debut after signing on loan from Cardiff, and although he only played 45 minutes the Manager was keen for him to get some game time.

He added: “He didn’t train with us yesterday [Friday] so fair play to him, I thought he looked sharp and competitive. He’s a good player, he’s a good athlete with good pace and I think he will give good competition to John and Max which is what we needed.

“We’ve got options and variations, I don’t want to keep tinkering too much but we know what we are capable of doing.”
