Gladwin - Focus On Ourselves And The Results Will Come

28 February 2017

Ben Gladwin is confident Town can make it back-to-back wins in the Sky Bet League One tonight as long as they focus on their own game.


The Reds are on a high following their impressive victory against Coventry City on Saturday, but they will be hoping to follow that up with another three-point haul when they host Gillingham at The County Ground later (7.45pm Kick-Off).


It is a huge game for both sides and Gladwin believes Town are just starting to get into their groove at the perfect time.


“Everyone is aware of the pressure and obviously we know we need to win games and pick up points, but it isn’t a horrible environment to come into every morning,” he said.


“Everyone is confident and looking forward to the games.


“There are a lot of positives from the last two performances and hopefully we can go on and pick up more points.


“We’ve got a young group so putting too much pressure on anyone isn’t going to help. We need to try and relax and go out there and express ourselves.


“Like I said, I thought we were really, really good in the last two games and we need to carry that on.


“We all know that there is pressure every time we go out and perform, so as a group and as an individual you need to be able to go out and push yourself as much as you can and perform as best as you can.


“Results haven’t been great since the Bolton game, we had a little dip in the middle, but I feel the team and myself are starting to pick back up now and hopefully we can have a good end to the season.


“I’ve got no doubt that we’ll be fine come the end of the season - all the boys are trying as hard as we can to get us out of trouble.


“We’ve got a good squad and I’m confident we’ll finish the season strongly.


“We’ve done our clips on Gillingham but we’re our own worst enemy at times and, at the same time, we’ve been our own best friend in the last two games so when we’re playing well that’s all we need to worry about.


“We can go and get another three points tonight.”


Gladwin produced a fine performance on the left-side of an attacking three during the 3-1 win away at Coventry City on Saturday, laying on an assist for Nicky Ajose’s opener.


“It came up my side, I managed to work a yard and it got to Nicky and went in the back of the net,” he added.


“We worked on it during the week in terms of me playing on the left and James Brophy playing on the right and it paid off.


“You try and put it into an area and Nicky’s movement is top drawer, so he’s likely to get on the end of things.”
