IN-FORM GILLS DO JUSTIN PROUD
GILLINGHAM boss Justin Edinburgh admits even he has been taken aback by his side’s emphatic start to the league season.
The Gills were two points clear at the top of the table at the start of the weekend, having won four of their last five games in League One.
And former Tottenham defender Edinburgh, 45, insists his side can continue to challenge the favourites.
“We are massively overachieving and there is no doubt about that,” he said.
“We are not big-hitters in the league financially, but that doesn’t say we can’t continue to develop and fight to stay up at the top.”
And despite his young side’s impressive home record, Edinburgh believes they can still improve.
“They are not the finished article,” he added. “Their age and the number of appearances under their belts tell you that.
“We are learning a lot about ourselves and will continue to do so. We’ve shown lots of positives, but I feel that we have got to be able to embrace the position we are in.
“We need to try and take the level of performance up. We are at the top and so people will want to come at us and beat us.We have got to learn to deal with that level of expectation.”
