Youth Report | Northampton Town 3-0 Gillingham

Reaction from Craig Stone as Gills defeated at Northampton.

“We seem to have a little bit of a tough time when we go to Northampton, it was 3-0 last year and we find it a hard place to go. Without using an excuse you only get half an hour for warm-up, no toilets or dressing rooms so you are getting changed on the side of the pitch and we were 2-0 down inside six minutes through two set pieces.

“We gave ourselves a mountain to climb; we had a go but in the last ten minutes we conceded again from a set piece to make it 3-0. Take the first six minutes out and there wasn’t much between the teams. They were very direct, got the ball into the box, quite aggressive and well drilled and we need to learn to adapt to that.”


Gills Starting XI: Walker, Lintott, Jones, Baker, Nelson, Akehurst, Maher, Sithole, Smith, Britton, Chambers.

Subs: Crump, Dempsey, Medhurst, Ley, Grode
