Boss Peter Taylor has warned Gillingham must tighten up at the back.

They have conceded a series of sloppy goals this season, with two more against Peterborough last weekend.

Posh’s strike in the seventh minute of injury time denied Gills’ victory and Taylor says they can’t afford to keep giving away bad goals.

He said: “There’s been too many times this season we’ve let in goals, especially from corners, so that’s disappointing and it’s something we’ve got to improve on.

“We have identified things that should help us. We’ve talked about it a lot and you just want the boys to carry it on when they get on to the pitch.

“I can’t be completely open on the things that were wrong for the second goal on Saturday because it would alert other clubs.

“But the players know there’s certain things I want them to do and if they do them right, then we will stop conceding easy goals. We’ve shown them on the DVD exactly what we’re on about and we’re in agreement.

“If people score good goals against us, you can live with that. It’s the beauty of football. But I just think there’s been too many times where we’ve let teams get the first header from corners and things."
