Harris | "It's another point gained"

Gills boss reflects on the 0-0 draw with Harrogate.

Neil Harris speaks to the press following the 0-0 draw against Harrogate.

Gillingham manager Neil Harris said it was another valuable point on the board after his side were held to a goalless stalemate by Harrogate Town.

The Gills put in a strong performance at the back but just lacked the killer touch against another team fighting for their league survival.

“The important thing  was not getting beat,” reflected Harris. “It was important to not let Harrogate close that gap on us. I wanted three points and the fans wanted another Gills win but it wasn’t to be, we have to quickly move on to Tuesday when we have a massive test against Stockport.

“Harrogate is a tough place to come. I asked my players to show character and mentality and I thought we had that in abundance, we just didn’t have that moment of quality to win it.

“Overall it’s a third game in the week, a clean sheet and looking at the league table after the results it’s another point gained. I was delighted with the backing we got from our supporters, mega as usual.

“My only disappointment is that when we did take care of the ball better in the second half and when we put some really good balls in the box they either defended really well against us or we just didn’t quite have that anticipation to get that winner."
