“First half was good, second half was professional.”
That was how Gills boss Peter Taylor summed up a commanding 2-0 victory over winless Crewe on Saturday.
“I was very pleased with the first half,” Taylor said, after watching his side score twice in the opening half of the League 1 match.
“I thought we played some good football and we played football where the boys had to go and chase the ball. I thought they did well. We created some decent chances. First half I was very happy.
“It was a very confident start. I thought (central defenders) John Egan and Kortney Hause were in control at the back, they wanted the ball and they pushed us high up the field, which was encouraging. I think there were lots of positives.
“Second half we had to be professional because we knew Crewe would come out and have to do better.”
The Gills had enough chances to grab a third but Taylor knew his side had to be wary after the break.
He said: “If anything, we needed that third goal, then that does relax you a little. 2-0 is a dangerous score.
“We didn’t want to go blazing forward (in the second half) to try and get the third goal. Then all of a sudden you could let Crewe in and it’s a different game.
“Overall, they had a couple of chances where the ball could have gone their way and it may have ended up in a goal but overall I still think we had more chances second half.”
