Gillingham boss Peter Taylor has told his squad to play for their future
Gillingham’s upturn in form is giving boss Peter Taylor food for thought, as he plans ahead.
The Gills boss has yet to have his own future clarified beyond this season but may well be responsible for deciding which players stay or go in the summer.
Taylor has previously warned Gillingham’s players that their livelihoods were under threat as the team battled against the drop.
But impressive recent performances against some of the league’s top sides have left the Gills mid-table and Taylor uncertain over the future of members of his squad.
He said: “There are a few where contracts are up but what I would say to those players is that if they keep playing the way they are and the team carry on progressing, they are certainly going to have a better chance of getting those contracts.
“Let’s keep picking up the points. Going on our performances, it is obvious they are stepping up and it is in their own interests, for their families and everything else.
“If you are playing well regularly, then you are going to get work next year. If you are not and the team are doing poorly, then there is a doubt that you will get work."
