Gills manager Justin Edinburgh spoke to the media following his side's 1-1 draw at Peterborough United on Boxing Day

Gills manager Justin Edinburgh declared his satisfaction with the point his side gained away to promotion-chasing Peterborough United on Boxing Day.

Defender Baily Cargill’s brilliantly-executed goal in stoppage game earned the Gills a 1-1 draw after Posh, who had won six out of their previous eight league games, went ahead through Lee Angol’s opener on 78 minutes. 

Edinburgh on…the game: “It was a tough game, a really good spectacle. I thought we were unlucky to fall behind but it was some finish from Baily [for the equaliser]. I thought we may have run out of time [to find an equaliser], but it was a very good goal. Overall, it was a fair result.”

Edinburgh on…Peterborough: “Not many teams have come here lately and taken any points; many have come away with nothing. It was a valuable away point. Our home form has started to gain momentum; I said that we need consistency away from home, so we’ll look back on today’s point with satisfaction.”

Edinburgh on the performance: “We had a lot of chances, they got some good blocks in and their goalkeeper made some good saves. They’re a team in good form, and we were worthy of a good point.

“I thought Waggy [Scott Wagstaff] was excellent today. We moved him up the pitch, and he was full of energy and drive. His versatility is a big plus; he’s stepped into the Aaron Morris role. He always puts in a shift wherever he plays, which says a lot about him. 

“The point shows the resilience and character within the squad.”
