Head coach Ady Pennock spoke to the press ahead of the Sky Bet League One fixture against Millwall on Saturday
Gills head coach Ady Pennock gives his thoughts ahead of the match against Millwall on Saturday
and offers updates on injuries in the Gillingham squad.
Pennock on… the Millwall game: “Last week was a kick in the teeth, but we have three home games left and it is still in our hands.
“Everyone at this football club wants to stay in this division, and it starts tomorrow. It will be a fantastic atmosphere and we want to give the fans something to cheer about. They fully deserve it, and so do the players.
“We know what they will be like. They will bring a lot of fans and be vocal, but we have to match them, and match them on the pitch as well.”
Pennock on…the MK Dons defeat: “We were deflated after the game, but we have to move on. I thought that the second half performance was very good.
“We created many chances; Cody [Mcdonald] and Lee Martin had good opportunities and it was a very good second half performance, but we were deflated because it would have been a very big point.”
Pennock on… injuries: “[Scott] Wagstaff has had a scan and he will struggle to get back playing this season. However, saying that, he is a good healer. He has a slight tear on his ankle.
“[Bradley] Garmston is back from Qatar, but will be out for the rest of the season, which is unfortunate.
“We’ve had good news on [Chris] Herd. He is starting to some training and running and may be available next week.”
