Junior Brown was frustrated on Saturday as he was controversially denied a second goal, which would have sent his goal tally into double figures.

But the midfielder admitted that the draw at league leaders Gillingham will spur the side on to storm into the promotion picture again. Brown thought he had regained the lead for Town when he netted in the second half, only to realise that the assistant had chalked it off. He said: “It was a tight one, so we’ll obviously have a look back at it whether it was or it wasn’t, but it’s disappointing because the lads grafted really well. We worked hard first half especially, we played some lovely stuff so it is disappointing to concede when we did. We gave them the incentive to come out in the second half and put us under pressure like they did. But we grafted well and worked hard as a unit and I thought we thoroughly deserved a point, if not all three points at the end.” The winger has been on fire so far this season, and praised the work rate of his team mates at the Priestfield to ultimately grab a vital point; one that he believes they can take into the action-packed Christmas period. He continued: “They are top of the league and they are not at the top for no reason. They work hard and they get the ball forward quickly and they are a physical team.  They lads ground in today and we worked hard and fought for each other; and it is pleasing that we can keep working like that. “If we can keep doing that over the festive period, I don’t see why we can’t pick up the points we deserve, kick on and push ourselves back up, and hopefully get into that third spot.” Fleetwood make another long trip down south to Oxford United at the weekend, before the second meeting with Morecambe on Boxing Day in the big local derby. The Shrimps will be looking to gain revenge after the 4-0 thrashing at the Globe Arena back in September. It also features the return of former striker Richard Brodie.
