Jordan Graham says there is a feel good factor in the camp as Gills make the long journey to the KCOM.
Jordan Graham insists he does not feel daunted facing Sky Bet League One leaders Hull City, and has called on his teammates to “shock” anyone who doubts that they can go to the KCOM Stadium on Saturday and win.
The midfield-wizard, scorer of eleven goals and star of an impressive highlight reel of assists, admits it won’t be an easy task, but one the Gills certainly are capable of.
Speaking with local media via Zoom, the midfielder said: “I’m looking forward to it; the bigger games, the better. I like to play the bigger teams at the bigger stadiums. Hull City are a Championship club really, and they are having a good season, but at the end of the day, we have no one to fear. If our individual qualities come through, then I don’t see why we can’t go to Hull and get three points.
“I don’t really care if we are favourites or underdogs, it’s irrelevant to me. I just want to win whether people expect us to or not. We don’t fear anyone in this league. We want to take it game by game and get three points every time. Saturday will be tough, but we are going there to win. I don’t look at any team in this division and think they are better than us.”
One of the words that is repeated most in a Jordan Graham interview is ‘belief’ and it is also something the forward-roving winger isn’t short of.
Graham said: “The atmosphere in the changing room and on the training pitch is second to none. The boys have a real belief and we have started to find some form in the last month or so. If we can take that energy and attack these last nine games then who knows where we could end up. There is a real belief amongst us at the minute, players, staff and everyone involved in the club, that we could achieve something quite special.
“There’s 27 points left to play for and we want to take a maximum from that; the boys will give it everything. It’s a big nine games now, so we all need to pull in the same direction. It seems like a long shot, but it is possible. I’ve seen crazier things happen in football than Gillingham get in the play-offs this season, that’s for sure.”
