Peter Taylor is convinced young striker Jack Marriott is the real deal.

The Gills boss brought the striker in on loan from Championship side Ipswich for the remainder of the season.

And with an impressive scoring record already behind him, Taylor is looking forward to seeing what he can offer the Gills.

“This is a lovely opportunity for Jack to get some league experience,” said Taylor. "He knows he won’t play every week and I have spoken to Mick McCarthy (about that) but he is going to be a good player, there is no doubt about that.

“Our supporters will like to see the honesty of the young boy running around all over the place. He is a good finisher and we have seen that in our training sessions already. We are hopeful Jack will do well here.”

Taylor wanted to bring in a natural finisher to the club and with nine goals in nine games while on loan at Woking, Marriott is just what he was looking for.

Taylor said: “Jack has scored a lot of goals, everywhere he has played – every team at every level. I wanted that type of player. To have him, Cody McDonald, Danny Kedwell and Adebayo Akinfenwa all pushing each other is great.”

Marriott was an unused substitute against Wolves and Taylor insists it will be down to him how much he plays.

Taylor said:”Sometimes you take loan players on and you then say, ‘I am going to start him, he is always going to start’."
