The pressure on Peter Taylor wouldn’t have been eased anymore by Gillingham’s FA Cup exit on Saturday, although the performance was one he felt we did ourselves justice in.

Gillingham fell at the first round of the FA Cup, losing 2-1 to league 1 rivals and leaders Bristol City but Taylor didn’t feel that he could have asked much more from his side.

After the game he told the media: ‘I can’t complain when they run around and play like that.

‘They showed they wanted to win the match. That’s all I can ask for. We know we need a win to lift a lot of people, on and off the field.’

A first half goal from Greg Cunningham (40) put Bristol City ahead with a late goal from Jay Emmanuel-Thomas (77) doubling the lead before Danny Kedwell (81) gave us hope from the penalty spot in the final 10-minutes.

We couldn’t find the equaliser to force a replay at Ashton Gate though….

Taylor didn’t feel the first half showing was too bad, but there wasn’t enough ‘good play’ but the second half saw ‘a few more questions’ asked of Bristol City with that response pleasing him.

It was always going to be a difficult game, but for some better defending he even thought we could have won, adding: ‘We expected it to be a hard game, and it was a game we could have won.

‘I felt we could have dealt with the first goal a bit better and the shot for the second was from one of our defensive headers.’

The pressure is really on Taylor now, you almost feel that even though he’s got ‘the vote of confidence’ anything less than a win in our next league 1 game and his time back at Priestfield could be up?
