Head Coach gives reaction after Gills win

Uwe Rosler revealed that he was delighted with his team’s performance after sealing a crucial 2-1 win over Gillingham at Highbury Stadium.

David Ball opened the scoring in the first half, but then Jake Hessenthaler equalised for the Gills 10 minutes into the second period, before Ashley Hunter’s volley sealed a late win.

Rosler said that he was happy with the way his team played throughout the 90 minutes but he thought that Gillingham’s wingers were the toughest part of the opposition.

“We had some great opportunities where we missed the last ball and then we got sucked into their game,” said Rosler.

“I’m delighted with our performance though and we started the game very well and got the early goal again.

“We found it difficult to deal with their wide players because we couldn’t get around them.

“Our pressing against some teams was difficult to hold them away because they just lobbed the ball into their body, it was very difficult.”

The German also thought that his side had the mental advantage which helped them deal with all the long balls played by the Gills, and even win them the game.

“Mentally, we were strong dealing with the long balls and the balls into the box and like I always said, in Fleetwood Town, nobody is more important than the team.

“Our substitutions helped us today with energising us again and winning us the game.”

Rosler had nothing but praise for his strikers after the game and he think that Ball, who scored the first goal in the game, contributes a lot, on and off the ball.

“I think he has played a lot of minutes for me and he is a goal scorer and he contributes a lot to the team off the ball.

“I’m very happy to have him and my other strikers.”
