Gillingham have made an absolutely blinding start to the League 1 season!

Many would have hoped for it to be good under Justin Edinburgh in his first full season as the Gills boss, with the positive signs shown last season after he arrived, however if this would have seen Gillingham, around the midway point of September, sitting at the top of the table and still unbeaten I’m not so sure if that would have been the expectancy?

This is what we’ve seen though with Bradley Back, who has been in fine form, explaining to the key to this to the Official Website this week.

In the wake of the win over Blackpool, with Dack grabbing the winner, a greater ‘togetherness’ and ‘trust in each other’ is the key to the Gills success for the midfielder.

He said that, as much as it was known it would be ‘a tough game,’ he always had belief the Gills would ‘score the winning goal’ as the confident is flowing throughout the club at the moment.

‘It was a tough game, the gaffer told us before the game that we can’t take any team for granted.

‘I always felt we were going to score the winning goal with our confidence at the minute, it always feels like it’s just around the corner.

‘The new players who have come in have been excellent, they have come in and settled straight away which is a rare thing in Football. Usually it takes a few games but they have hit the ground running, as we have as a team.

‘We are all together and we need to trust each other.’

On a personal note, following his latest goal, he said it’s ‘going really well’ for him but knows ‘the team is the most important thing’ with him not looking too far ahead simply, as the old cliché goes, with Gillingham ‘taking every game as it comes.’

Edinburgh had recently mentioned the six-one defeat to Amiens in pre-season as a contributing factor to the turnaround at the club with Dack also mentioning that friendly from the training camp in Le Touquet back in July, adding.

‘That trip was important, we got worked really hard and then we played a game on the last day. The result (Gills losing 6-1 to Amiens) didn’t tell the whole story but it was a good bit of team bonding and it`s paying off now.’

An unbeaten run is something Gillingham will want to continue for as long as possible, will this remain the case by the time the Gills face Chesterfield at the Proact Stadium at 3pm on Saturday 10th October?

We’ll find out soon enough!

However, what we do now know is the Official Website has also confirmed ticket details for this away game.
