Boss on Bank Holiday Monday clash...
OUR BUSY Easter schedule continues on Monday as we play host to a Gillingham side who will be boosted by their victory over Tranmere on Friday.
As far as we are concerned, we want to put on a performance in front of our own supporters and get back into winning ways on home soil.
If we play with the urgency and brightness that we have done for most of this season, we will be okay.
We are only too aware that we haven’t had the results at home that we would have liked but we have the opportunity to put things right on Monday and add three points to our tally.
Our aim is to get as many points as we can and finish as high as we can. Professional pride means that we won’t allow the season to just peter out; we have worked too hard to allow that to happen.
There is a lot of potential here and our performance levels have generally been good throughout but we haven’t necessarily got the number of points on the board that we have deserved.
We have three games to go now and hopefully we can end on a high.
It was nice to see Michael Ngoo get off the mark on Friday whilst the likes of James McQuilkin and Kieron Morris had the opportunity to impress.
Whilst we kept the ball well in the opening period at Carlisle, our tempo was nowhere near where it should have been. We were able to get into the lads during the interval and were on the front-foot during the second half.
It’s always a tough place to go and I was pleased that we were able to come from behind to get a point, even though we deserved all three in the end.
