Justin Edinburgh reacts to Gillingham's 2-0 defeat to Barnsley in League 1

Gills boss Justin Edinburgh didn’t think his team did enough to warrant a win on Saturday.

Edinburgh’s team conceded goals at crucial stages in the game at Oakwell and were unable to get back into the match.

“I’m disappointed and nobody enjoys losing,” said the manager.

“The dressing room was full of disappointment and it was the first time this season we haven’t done enough to win the game. It was disappointing in that respect.

“We were on top for the first 20 minutes but they hit us on the break and they scored right before half-time, which was a killer blow.

“We gave our all in the second half but it wasn’t to be. To go in 2-0 down was hard to take.

"We huffed and puffed but I don’t think our inventiveness in and around the final third was good enough to have won the game.

“The players have gone right to the end and they’ve tried but I felt that it’s not been the level we want.

“We have to go that extra level for each other or beyond. If you don’t do that you are waiting to see what will happen rather than making it happen. That is how it panned out, certainly in the second half.”
