Gillingham’s chairman came under fire from fans again on Saturday - but manager Steve Evans says his boss is working hard to make things better.

Club chairman Paul Scally has hit out at critics already this season, saying he will be going after those making false statements. During Gills’ 2-0 defeat against Wycombe Wanderers supporters unfurled a “Scally Out” banner while calling for him to go.

Mr Scally said he was “stunned” after hearing similar songs sung at Shrewsbury earlier in the season, saying it was “unpleasant, hurtful and not necessary.”

First team boss Evans has often spoken of the club’s lack of resources but is hopeful that could change.

Speaking after Saturday’s loss, Evans said: “We know what we are lacking but resources don’t allow us to do anything about that. That may change in January.

“We know how hard our chairman is working, it is clear he has been working so hard. He met people this week and I met them myself. He is working incredibly hard to turn that around for us.”

Gillingham are currently two points off the relegation places in League 1 after 12 games played.
