Gills boss reflects on the 2-0 win over Tranmere at Priestfield.
Neil Harris said that teams are finding Gillingham ‘a tough nut to crack’ after his side enjoyed their fifth home win from the last six games at MEMS Priestfield Stadium.
The boys in blue oozed quality all over the park and were very much in the driving seat as they defeated a decent Tranmere side 2-0.
“We are a force to be reckoned with,” purred Harris. “I don’t have any negatives; clean sheet, two goals and we could have had more as well. Only one team deserved to win that game.
“It was pretty even until we scored and then it was just one-way traffic. We burst into life just before the goal and after half-time there was only one team in it. I’m delighted with the whole squad, the atmosphere was fantastic, I just couldn’t be happier.
“We had a clean-sheet mentality and at the other end we were a threat. At no point in the second half did I feel that we were in danger.”
The well-oiled Gills wagon keeps rolling and the team who were once glued to the bottom of the table are now one of the most in-form sides in the division.
“It is ridiculous to think that on January 10th, before we played Hartlepool, that we were only on 14 points,” reflected Harris. “14 points at the halfway stage is embarrassing.
“How far we have come as a group is a huge credit to the football club.
“The most pleasing thing for me is the points. The points are the bottom line. Today’s win is three more points gained on the teams around us.
“We just need to keep going and building the performances. We just want to keep winning games.”
