Peter Taylor is determined to make his stay at Gillingham a long one.

The Gills manager is currently on a deal until the end of the season, but he’s determined to stay longer at Priestfield and build a team to head back into the Championship.

Taylor said: “I would love to be here long term, to build a good young team.

“There are certain things that I have seen since I have been here that I would approach in a different way but we have to wait and see. We need to get another 18 points at least first.

“It makes me more determined to go and get safe and if we get safe, then I am sure that puts me in a better position with the chairman.

“My relationship with the chairman is first class. I know if we keep doing what we are doing now and we stay up, then there is a fair chance I will be here, hopefully. I do look at this long term and always have done.”

Taylor’s side have won seven of the 16 games in League 1 he has overseen and they sit 14th in the table. A win at Brentford on Friday would lift Gillingham up to 11th.
