Gillingham midfielder Charlie Lee says results are more important than style at this stage of League 2 season
Charlie Lee admitted Tuesday’s
display against Northampton wasn’t the prettiest but was just
pleased to get back on form at home.
Lee revealed how Saturday’s draw
with York had left the players feeling low but Gills bounced back
against the Cobblers.
"It feels brilliant, especially
after Saturday," said the 26-year-old. "We were all a bit down and
it’s the first time this season we’ve felt a bit dejected after the
game, so I wouldn’t have wanted to be Northampton.
"I knew there would be a big
comeback from the boys and they were raring for it."
The conditions dictated on Tuesday,
with wind and rain and a boggy pitch but they did not deter the
Gills who ended a run of five games without a win at home and
went top of League 2 ahead of the weekend’s fixtures.
"We just have to ride the
rollercoaster now," said Lee. "We are playing good football and
need to build on that at home.
"We haven’t picked up as many
points in the last few games as we did at the start but every team
at the top is finding it hard. When you are top, teams come and sit
in behind (the ball).
"We are not going to have the run
of wins like we did at the start because teams set up differently
but we have to keep picking up points. If we keep up this form, we
should get promoted."
Lee and the rest of the team
enjoyed a break for a couple of days but are due back in training
on Saturday ahead of Monday’s live Sky Sports match at home to
He said: "I don’t care if we play
ugly and I play bad – even if I score two own goals – as long as we
get three points."
