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

It was nice to be back in the starting XI on Tuesday but a shame about the result.

I have had to wait for my chance and it has been frustrating but the boys have been doing well and the results over the last few weeks haven’t been what we have deserved.

I bided my time and at Fleetwood I got the start and the goal but I am a bit upset because the first goal we conceded was my fault. I should have cleared it.

It sort of went straight in from the corner and I should have cleared. I thought I had a shout of seeing it out. That is something I will learn from.

If I went for it I could have cleared it. It was nice to score but it wasn’t the best of evenings.

We were told about how they played with the analysis before the game and I knew they do like to play it around a bit.

When their defender got the ball, I knew he wasn’t going to play it long and he lost his footing a bit.

I was one-on-one and I took it. We needed the goal, being 2-0 down and it was a big goal. It was a shame we couldn’t kick on. That second goal just wouldn’t come from us.

Nick Gearing does a good job with the analysis at the club and we nicked a goal from knowing how they like to play, by pressing. We get everything sent to us about our performances and Nick works hard on it.

He watches every game, analysing every second and he sends clips to every player so they know about everything.

It is good for every player to get that and the goal was down to his hard work.
