Stimpson before Gillingham
Both teams in the Easter Monday clash at the Priestfield stadium are now in the bottom four, will Gills boss Mark Stimpson call on one of his ex-Shrimpers. 1-0 to the Shrimpers Stimmo, we'll take thatSo Blues boss Steve Tilson accepts it was a 'flat' performance after Yeovil and that not being paid on time once again wasn't 'helping'.Well, that all counts for nothing now, as his team has to get a result at an equally lacking in confidence Gillingham, who are not so bad at home with only three defeats, than they are on their travels.Gills manager and ex-Blue Mark Stimpson has his own problems though but is still confident his team will pull through and out of the dreaded drop zone. Stimpson spoke to www.kentonline.co.uk: "It's happened before and we got straight out of it. We need to do that again. What matters is that after 46 games we're not in it. There will be a lot of twists and turns at both ends of the table."No argument with that, but how does he approach todays game against the team one place below his, the team that has lost seven times on the trot on the road.Stimpson continued: "It's a massive game, isn't it? We've had two games against them this year, we lost one and won the other. We just have to make sure we turn up, and for 90 minutes. We need to keep focus and keep concentrating."
