Manager Rob Page has said our fightback against Gillingham securing us a point from the game felt like a victory given the effort the players put in.
Having taken the lead through Dany N’Guessan’s 18th minute opener, Gillingham hit back twice and it looked like the game was heading to be another loss before Michael Brown got us back on level terms in injury time.
Speaking to the Stoke Sentinel at full time, Page admitted that although he felt Gillingham’s quality on the day was superior to ours, he felt we more than deserved the point from the game given the players never gave up, fought and battled back and he admitted that had we lost the match he still would’ve been full of praise for the players and proud of their efforts over 90+ minutes.
‘It does feel like a win. I have just said to the boys the attitude and effort they have put in is tremendous. We have to be pleased to come here and dictate our game to them, and impose ourselves on them in the manner we did, and come away with a draw.’
The gaffer goes on to say that they simply gave him ‘everything’ they have and ahead of the leveller going in, he already had his after match talk to them planned and that would’ve centred on how proud he was of them, because he knows results will go our way more often than not as long as we make that kind of showing and determination our benchmark for the future.
