GAFFER PREVIEWS CRAWLEY

Gills boss looks ahead to Saturday's game against Crawley

Justin Edinburgh is hoping his Gillingham side can recapture a more fluent style when they take on Crawley tomorrow (3pm).

The Gills have only lost twice in their last 14 outings but haven’t recorded maximum points since the 3-0 win over Swindon earlier this month.

Despite that the Manager doesn’t believe much needs changing, and hopes for a positive result against the Red Devils.

He said: “Crawley are on a very good run but we need to go there, pose ourselves and look to get three points.

“What we probably haven’t done is beat the teams in and around us often enough and that’s something we need to address and put right on Saturday.

“We know we are going to be up against it, they have found form at the right time and have come out of the bottom four.

“We are confident in our own ability and we know we need to perform at a good level to make sure we get something out of the game.

“I don’t think there is a lot wrong, we lost heavily at Chesterfield and have drawn a few games but it’s just a case of minor adjustments, personnel change maybe but just getting back to that fluent football that we were playing.

“We just need to be a bit better in possession of the ball ourselves.”

Justin revealed Glenn Morris will continue in goal, highlighting that a number of players will have opportunities to impress between now and the end of the season.

He added: “Yes, we will see him again. Glenn deserves his chance, he has been playing well in the development games and I thought he showed that when he came in again on Saturday.

“He was accomplished, calm, had no chance with the two goals – he’s in and he will get a run at it.

“I’m going to be fair to everyone, reputations count for nothing.

“Between now and the end of the season there will be changes and opportunities for people to impress me.”
