Striker hoping midweek win can be catalyst for upcoming league fixtures.
Tuesday night’s match winner Lewis Walker enjoyed his fourth cup goal of the season as he fired Gillingham into the FA Cup second round.
Lewis, son of Nottingham Forest and England legend Des Walker, kept his composure to coolly give the home side a 43rd minute lead which ultimately proved the decisive moment in the two hard-fought encounters with AFC Fylde.
“We made it a little bit more difficult for ourselves than we needed to,” admitted the forward. “First-half we created a few chances and I missed a few myself; we could have been three or four up. Luckily we got one in. In cup football all you want is the result.
“The feeling is good after beating Fylde, a win is a win. We need that confidence, winning breeds winning, cup or league, the win is always massive for us in the dressing room.
“I approach every game, whether it’s a cup game or a league game, the same, we all do.
“We need that first away win in the league, that will take the pressure off. We have been training well, it’s just about putting it all together and getting that win. We have done well in cups this season and now it is time we created more in the league.”
