Peter Taylor has work to do from front to back at Gillingham.

The Gills boss was left frustrated by missed chances and poor defending at bottom club Notts County on Saturday.

Victory would have taken the Gills into the top half of League 1 for the first time this season but after a 3-1 defeat they were left sitting 17th – four points above the drop zone.

“We created enough chances but I am disappointed with the finishing and the goals conceded because they were poor goals,” said Taylor, whose side have now conceded seven goals in their last two games.

“We all admitted that the Rotherham performance (last week) wasn’t good enough.

“I thought the (Notts County) performance was good enough but there were some individual errors on the goals and again they are the things we will be talking about all week.

“To be fair if we had been 3-1 up at half-time, people would have said that was fair.”

Taylor was a lot more positive than last week, when the Gills went down 4-1 at Rotherham.

He said: “I was disappointed with the team’s commitment, on certain things, of closing down but I certainly wasn’t disappointed this Saturday. We worked hard but it just wasn’t effective enough.

“There is a lot more to work with than last week. I am certainly not critical of the players’ work-rate, I just felt at times our work has got to be put to better use.”
