Gills boss Peter Taylor backed the sponsors’ decision to award Steven Gregory Friday’s man-of-the-match accolade.

The midfielder played a key role in the 1-0 win over Wolves, despite suffering with illness, as he continued to prove his doubters wrong.

Taylor said: “I agree with him being man-of-the-match 100% and he wasn’t well. He was sick at half-time but we asked him to carry on and he was outstanding.

“I saw a couple of games here before I came in as manager and I thought he had everything. I told him that the first day I spoke to him.

“He has everything you need to be a good holding midfielder. He was probably a little nervous at home, was making the wrong decisions and wasn’t making himself look as good as he should do.

“But he showed exactly what he is capable of doing on Friday.

“He can break things up, he can win the ball, he can pass well and I am pleased that he is showing what he can do.

“It was not an easy pitch to play on either and against Wolves as well but he showed good confidence.”
