Gills boss Peter Taylor wasn’t too disheartened by Saturday’s defeat at Notts County.

Taylor felt it was an improvement on last week’s loss at Rotherham and was pleased with the amount of chances his team created.

It was their failure to convert those opportunities that irked the manager.

“The performance was okay,” he said.

“But if you don’t take your chances then sometimes you get punished and I felt we certainly should have scored more than one goal.

“Their goalkeeper had a very good day and saved some cert goals, but we also missed a couple of easy chances as well.

“It wasn’t like the Rotherham performance, there was more about us than that so that’s an improvement, but you can’t afford to give cheap goals away.”

Gillingham had scored an early equaliser in the second half, through Bradley Dack, but the hosts hit back five minutes later with a second goal for Callum McGregor.

It was a goal that Taylor initially felt was off-side.

“We have looked at it again and it was poor defending from us and we’ve got to do better,” he admitted.

The Gills were still in with a chance of getting something from the game, at 2-1, before Jack Grealish was allowed to run at goal and pick his spot to finish Taylor’s team off.

“Grealish is a very good player but we made him look like George Best,” the Gills manager said.
