Peter Taylor was pleased with the performance of returning striker Antonio German on Friday night.

The 21-year-old had not played for the Gills since the FA Cup first round replay 1-0 defeat against non-league Brackley.

German was chosen ahead of more senior pros including Charlie Lee and Craig Fagan to replace Myles Weston at Tranmere, when the winger limped off with a hamstring strain.

“When he first came on he looked really dangerous,” said Gillingham boss Taylor.

“I felt for him a little bit. He hasn’t played much football and then he had to play 70 minutes, doing a lot of running. He was tired at the end.

“But it has been explained to him that’s the game we are in, you have to run around and work hard to be a player.”
