It’ll be a thrill to topple Gills

GOALKEEPER Scott Davies believes Fleetwood Town can bag their first league win under Graham Alexander at league leaders Gillingham on Saturday.

Seventh-placed Town travel to Priestfield on Saturday to face Martin Allen’s men, hoping to close the 12-point gap between the sides in League Two.

But Davies believes Fleetwood have what it takes to make the long trip to Kent a profitable one.

The Town no.1 said: “On paper it is a tough game. There’s no doubt, on early season form, the Gills are the team to beat this year. They are the runaway league leaders.

“But we’ve lost a few games that maybe we should not have, and dropped points when we should have taken all three.

“If you add all of those up, I think the gap between the sides isn’t quite as wide as it might seem.

“I think we can go down there and win – there’s no reason to think any other way.”

And the stopper, named man of the match in Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Southend is impressed with his new boss Graham Alexander.

He said: “You can see the hunger in him and he’s a man with a fantastic record in the game, which has taken him to the very highest level.

“There’s no doubt our new manager is a winner and I’m sure he’ll bring that to Fleetwood Town.”
