Gaffer | "This is a hard one to take"

Steve Evans addresses the media following defeat to Fleetwood.

Manager reflects on defeat to Fleetwood.

Gaffer Steve Evans said the 2-0 defeat to Fleetwood on Saturday was tough to take considering his side bossed proceedings for long spells.

Fleetwood were clinical with their chances when they arrived in the second half, with Gills having already struck the woodwork twice through Dominic Samuel and John Akinde.

Speaking after the game the manager said: “I think the best team has lost today. We bossed it for long periods, we’ve got to be disappointed that Camps gets the first header that hits the crossbar [for the first goal] and you have to be disappointed it's handball in front of the assistant referee [for the second]. We played really well; we made chances and we never took them.

"They made three chances and take two; we make five and take none. 80% of the game today has been very good; we kept possession and were dominant, certainly for the first hour.

“If we take our chances we are probably three or four up at half-time and the game is over. Fleetwood have come, scored twice, and from a distance it looks as if it’s comfortable. They rode their luck in the first half, they got a goal against the run of play for me and the second one is a foul, but we’ll take it.

"This is a hard one to take."
