Sean Goss Post Gillingham

23 October 2019

Town played out a frustrating draw with Gillingham in the Sky Bet League One.

The first half saw Town put in a below par performance but in the second half an improved performance saw Omar Beckles get the all-important goal.

Midfielder Sean Goss was the provider of the ball that Omar turned home, and he had a decent game creating a number of chances for Town.

After the game, a frustrated Goss spoke to the press to give his thoughts on the game.

“It was very frustrating, in the first half we were nowhere near at it”, said Sean.

“We were slow to everything, weren’t good enough on the ball, weren’t good enough defensively and then we gave a penalty away.

“The penalty before half-time has killed us off really.

“I thought we were better in the second half and created more chances but we should be winning games like that.

“It’s as simple as that if we want to get to where we want to, all the lads are frustrated and know that.”

Sean was asked if he could put his finger on why Town put in such a lacklustre first-half performance.

“I don’t think I can put my finger on why and it’s really frustrating for us out there on the pitch”, said Sean.

“We got in at half-time and had a good chat to get everyone up for it again.

“It showed in the second half with everyone moving the ball quicker but we can’t start games like that.”

Town got on level terms on 64 minutes after Sean put the ball back into the danger area to set-up Omar Beckles.

“I got the ball wide and have crossed it in and Omar has done a great finish”, said Sean.

“That wasn’t enough though as we want to be going on and winning games.

“We’ve had a few chances at the end and I think we were unlucky not to nick it.

“Saying that I probably don’t think we did enough to win the game and tonight wasn’t our night.

“We are going to have to be working hard in training this week because if we start like that on Saturday we have got no chance.

“Playing against Sunderland it’s going to be a tough game and we need everyone on it from the start.

There is a frustration in the Town squad that recent performances have seen the squad fall below the high standards they set each other.

“To get where we want to be in the table we need to be turning these draws into wins”, said Sean.

“We have definitely got the squad to do that, if you look at the squad we could be up there.”

Focus now turns to Saturday’s game at home to Sunderland. The game looks to be a sell-out but Sean knows the team needs to put a better performance in over the whole 90-minutes.

“I’m sure it will be a sell-out and we are all looking forward to that”, said Sean.

“We need to work hard this week and make sure that we don’t start slow.

“We need to be 100 miles an hour from the start and get at them.”
