KIERAN ON GILLS MEETING

6 January 2022

"If we're as solid, organised and resolute as we were in that game, and with the same level of determination, then we give ourselves a good chance"

Kieran McKenna believes Gillingham this weekend will offer similar threats to those that Wycombe did in Town's previous outing eight days ago.

The Blues came out on top against Wanderers with a 1-0 victory at Portman Road, and head to MEMS Priestfield Stadium on Saturdday to face Steve Evans' side, who sit 22nd in the League One table.

"Gillingham are an opponent that aren't too dissimilar to Wycombe in terms of style," the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.

"They're a strong team physically and they're effective on set pieces and winning the second ball. They will put us under pressure and try to put balls into the box.

"Against Wycombe we stood up well to that type of threat, and the clean sheet was a big factor as it gave us the foundation to go on and win the game.

"If we're as solid, organised and resolute as we were in that game, and with the same level of determination, then we give ourselves a good chance."

"The challenge is to hit those levels that we did against Wycombe in the parts of the game that we played well, and try to maintain that for longer.

"We need to be mentally, physically and tactically prepared for what they offer, and then we'll try to show our quality."

The full interview with Kieran is available to watch on iFollow Ipswich.
