Gillingham manager Martin Allen to change line-up against Northampton in a bid to end barren run at Priestfield
Gillingham boss Martin Allen is determined for his team to put
things right at Priestfield.
The Gills have failed to win at home in their previous five
League 2 games and tonight they come face-to-face with in-form
Allen, pictured, said: "They are the form team in this
division. We are up against a good team. They are well organised
and have some good players.
"We will make changes and will be full on, ready and play our
way. On and off the field, everyone will be at it and ready for
what could be an exciting game.
"I watched them against Aldershot (last week) and they played
well but everyone who saw us on Saturday will recognise that my
focus and concentration has to be on the Gillingham players and
improving our performance, especially when we play here, in front
of our supporters.
"We cleared this pitch of snow and the performance (on Saturday)
was below the standards we set earlier in the season.
"The fans and the players were expecting it and we all want it
as much as everyone else. It’s about time we put something on here
for our fans, who pay and to send them home happy."
Allen is set to change his forward line and new signing Cody
McDonald is likely to start alongside Deon Burton.
