Midfielder Bradley Dack believes Gillingham could cause an upset against Brentford
Gillingham midfielder Bradley Dack has warned in-form Brentford that they won’t be getting an easy ride.
The Bees have gone 15 games unbeaten to emerge as one of the favourites to win the League 1 title.
Dack knows the Gills will need to be on their game from the start on Friday night to end that run.
And after some impressive results of late – against Swindon and Wolves – he isn’t ruling anything out.
He said: “It’s going to be tough and they are a top side, one of the best teams in the division but we will look to go there and try and stop them playing, get in their faces and not let them have time on the ball.
“They look to move the ball around, like Swindon and there are a lot of teams that pass the ball well in this division. We have to get tight from the front and hopefully we can come out with a result.”
The Gills head into the game sitting 14th in League 1 and few will be giving them much hope of winning the game. Skybet have them as 13/2 for a win.
But that pressure to succeed could benefit the Gills.
“They have got all the pressure on them,” said Dack. “They are 15 games unbeaten and are going to be expecting to win. We are not expected to get anything from the game, so we can go there as underdogs, with no pressure on us.”
