McKenzie | "We will use the energy of the crowd"

Robbie McKenzie previews the visit of Harrogate in Sky Bet League 2.

9 September 2023

It's important to make Priestfield a tough place to come, says Robbie McKenzie.

Robbie McKenzie was on pre-match media duties earlier in the week ahead of the club's League Two game against Harrogate this weekend.

After a couple of defeats the Gills returned to winning ways versus Leyton Orient in their midweek EFL Trophy tie and are looking to carry that momentum into Harrogate. Robbie McKenzie gave us his thoughts.


On recent results


“It was good to get back to winning ways in the midweek game.

"The win will give the group more confidence as we head into Saturday and hopefully, we can keep the momentum going.

“Grimsby wasn’t our best performance; we can all admit that.

"We’ve put things right since and we need to carry that on to continue getting the wins.”


Harrogate Town


“We’ve got two home games in a row. We want to make Priestfield a difficult place for opposing teams to take three points from.


“These next two games are a good opportunity to really use that home advantage, take confidence from the home support and push on.


“League Two is a competitive league where anybody can beat anybody on the day. When we’re at home, we want to make sure we start brightly, take the game to the opposition, use the crowd’s energy and really make that home advantage count."


Playing for the Gills:


“I reached 100 appearances for Gillingham last season and that was a nice milestone to get. Hopefully I can get the 150.

"The club is going in the right direction under the new ownership, I think everyone can see that.”
