Departing striker Adebayo Akinfenwa believes Gillingham could struggle to keep hold of fellow frontman Cody McDonald if his scoring form continues.

McDonald bagged 17 goals for a Gills side which finished in the bottom half of League 1 last season.

Akinfenwa formed a lethal partnership with McDonald, who has one year left on his contract, but has no doubt that the goals will continue to flow without the two playing together.

He said: “Everyone knows how much I rate Cody – he is one of the best players I have played alongside.

“It was a partnership that we didn’t need to work on at the training ground for hours, it just clicked.

“It doesn’t matter what league Cody is in, he will score goals. You will see that again next season in this league and that is certified.

"You can’t doubt him. He will score goals and then it will be very hard for Gills to keep hold of him.”
