The Shouting Men: Gillingham striker Luke Norris writes exclusively for the KM Group

Tuesday’s performance was a weird one after performing so well lately.

The way we started set the tone and to be two goals down after just 10-12 minutes left us with a mountain to climb straight away.

Coming off the back of such a good performance against Bristol City, it was certainly not expected.

No disrespect to Chesterfield but Bristol had much better players and it was a shock.

We got caught out by two long balls and normally we deal with those so well. We’ve got a few games left this season, so hopefully we can put it right.

It was a long evening for ourselves and the fans who made the trip up there, with a return home at about 2.30am but as players, you get used to those long trips.Unfortunately, I can’t sleep on a moving coach so myself and a few of the others passed the time playing Monopoly.

I came on as a substitute at Chesterfield and out of the 30-odd appearances I have made this season, I have only started 11 and that’s not what I want.

I need regular 90 minutes to be playing at my best and that is not happening at the moment. I am sure that will come though, sooner or later.

All forwards need confidence to play well and if you are in and out of the team, then it is difficult to get that going. I had a few games in a row at Northampton, on loan last season but I haven’t yet experienced a 40-game season.
