Cody McDonald’s performance on Sunday thrilled Gills boss Peter Taylor.

And he feels the 27-year-old, who now scored both goals in a 2-2 draw with Walsall, is getting close to his best.  

Taylor said: “He was back to how we know he can play

“He could have won it for us and it’s nice looking at Cody when he is really quick over the 10 yards, which is what he was in the chance at the end which nearly made it 3-2 for us right at the death. That was really encouraging.

“He was great and a goal threat. First half he had a couple of chances against them and if we can get him back to how we know he can play - and he is getting closer now because he is playing extra games - that will be great for us.

“He is getting close to his best because he knows he is playing regularly and I think he is getting confident playing against any central defender, he thinks he can out-run them.”

McDonald scored a stunning opener, with an overhead kick.

“It was a great goal and he took it exceptionally well,” said Taylor.
