Gillingham boss Peter Taylor witnessed the good, the bad and the unlucky at MK Dons on Saturday.
Taylor felt there were positives to take from the performance, after going two goals ahead, but couldn’t hide his disappointment at letting in four goals.
He said: “There were good things, bad things and some unlucky things.
“I thought some of the things we did in the first half were good. We showed some good pace, showed some quality at times and got a couple of goals.
“There were some good things but also poor things and some of the goals were very poor defensively for us.”
Goals from Cody McDonald and Danny Kedwell put the Gills 2-0 up but they conceded just before the break.
“The one just before half-time killed us a little bit,” the Gills boss admitted.
“It gave Mk Dons a bit of momentum. It knocked us back. I still thought we could go on and get a third goal. I thought we were counter-attacking them very well.
“Unfortunately we let in two goals from crosses, which were poor goals, then one from a corner.
“They were poor goals. People have let people get infront of them, I won’t name names, but people have let people get across them and it’s a sin when you’re defending like that.”
The Gills lost the game and also lost two key players to injury.
Goalkeeper Stuart Nelson was subbed at half-time with a suspected broken thumb and goalscorer McDonald was stretchered off with a knee injury. Both will undergo scans to assess the seriousness.
