EDINBURGH: 11 CUP FINALS REMAINING

11 March 2016

Justin Edinburgh says he is not worrying about other results and is looking up, rather than down.

The manager believes his team has a lot to do going into the last 11 games, but says they are capable of going on a good run and finding the winning formula.

Earlier in the season the Gills had a settled team, which due to several factors, has had to be chopped and changed by Edinburgh in recent weeks.

Injuries to key players like John Egan, Bradley Dack and Ryan Jackson meant the manager had to shuffle the pack a few times, however he has praised those players that have filled in. 

George Williams has come into the team and has impressed after being given the chance. Then there are players like Brennan Dickenson and Aaron Morris who have played in several positions, not only throughout the season, but in a single match. 

Edinburgh thinks that the acquisition of Adam El-Abd at the back will help the team in the run-in to the end of the season. He said: "Adam has experience of getting out of this league and can help others around him."

The manager also gave an injury update for the long-term absentees; Cody McDonald is back on grass with his boots on and John Egan is back running in a straight line. 

Bradley Dack is itching to get back to full fitness as soon as possible to help the side, and Edinburgh says that his attitude is "typical" of the Gills' top scorer. 

Edinburgh said: "I'm pleased because we've only had two soft-tissue injuries all season. There's nothing you can do about impact injuries, and unfortunately for us they have come at the wrong time."

The Gills host Crewe Alexandra tomorrow looking to build on last week's well-earned point away to Scunthorpe.
