Matt Fish is back in the Gillingham starting eleven after a dip in form led to him being dropped to the bench
Defender Matt Fish believes his recent omission from the
Gillingham starting line-up was a welcome tonic.
Fish had started all-but-one of Gillingham’s games before being
left on the bench during the first meeting with York, four games
out, he has been re-instated back into the starting XI, including
on Saturday at Bradford, where he helped the Gills to a 1-0
Fish, 24, said: “I was doing well and then I had a bit of a dip
and the gaffer left me out and it gave me a kick up the bum.
“I feel good and sharp and maybe a bit of tiredness may have
been the reason for the dip in form but I feel I have been
consistent, especially after last year. I feel I have come back and
done well and just need to keep improving.”
The Gills were back on the road on Saturday, after a
disappointing defeat at home to Wycombe.
It was Gills’ fifth defeat on home soil but Fish added: “It’s
hard to put your finger on it. As a team, maybe there is a bit of
pressure at home, maybe it’s the crowd.
“We are in a great position to get promoted and need to just
keep doing what we are doing.”
