Gillingham boss Peter Taylor says his side still have it all to do ahead of the clash with Colchester United
Gillingham manager Peter Taylor
“We’ve not cracked it yet”, insisted Gills boss Peter Taylor.
Last week’s win over Wolves gave the League 1 club a huge lift but Taylor knows the job of steering clear of relegation is far from over.
He said: “If we all of a sudden think we’re the best team in the league and we haven’t got to run around as much then we are going to have no chance.
“We will get beaten in the next game, there is no doubt about that.
“We need to take on board why we got that result (against Wolves). We limited a good team to not many chances and beat them. That was down to team effort and hard work.
“Nobody here and certainly not me would ever think that because we have beaten Wolves we can now beat Colchester, that’s definitely not the case.
“There is no danger of me forgetting the (relegation threat). It won’t all of a sudden be nice training and thinking we’ve cracked it.
“We have got a long way to go. We haven’t cracked it but there is good progress.”
Saturday’s opponents Colchester sit a point below the Gills in League 1.
Taylor said: “Colchester are a little like us, a bit unpredictable and on some days they can be fantastic and other days they can be poor. We have got to make sure we are not poor on Saturday and give them a good game.p and respect the opposition but make sure we start better than them.”
