SCALLY’S PA­TIENCE PAYS OFF

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

THE idea of sack­ing Justin Ed­in­burgh dur­ing Gilling­ham’s poor run of form never crossed chair­man Paul Scally’s mind, he says.

The Gills failed to win in eight games, but since then Scally’s pa­tience has paid off, with Ed­in­burgh steer­ing his side to three league wins out of four.

“I am dis­ap­pointed with the way a num­ber of clubs have got rid of man­agers so quickly, af­ter a run of a few bad games,” said Scally. “I have been stag­gered by some of the de­ci­sions made.

“You can’t give a man­ager six or seven games and ex­pect them to nec­es­sar­ily have it right.”
