Woodrow: “We stuck to what we do best and played our football.”

Striker's reaction to 4-1 Gills win

11 February 2019

Cauley Woodrow believes timing was key in the victory over Gillingham.

Daniel Stendel’s side ran riot in Kent, scoring four goals in an away game for the fourth time this season. A goal each from Kieffer Moore and Jacob Brown, as well as a brace from Woodrow helped the Reds make it 11 matches unbeaten in Sky Bet League One.

Moore broke the deadlock after just 16 seconds and Woodrow praised his teammates attitude having taken the lead so early.

“When you score so early it’s easy to lose your focus. They only needed one goal to get back level, so it was important that we stuck to what we do best and played our football.

“To score just before half time really helped us out and then we came out in the second half and I managed to get the third which helped kill the game.”

Woodrow and his strike partner Moore have notched a combined 29 goals this season across all competitions, a stat the striker was asked about post-match.

“We both want to score goals but as long as the team is winning it doesn’t matter who is scoring them. For me and Kieffer to be scoring like we are, it's obviously a positive and hopefully his injury today isn't serious, and it will continue for the rest of the season in a solid parternship.”

The Reds were backed by a strong away following yet again at the Priestfield Stadium, and Woodrow believes the fans have played a huge part in the team's success: “Both home and away the fans have been excellent this season and the support means a lot to the team. 800 of them travelled here to support us, what an effort.”

Next up for the Reds is a home game against Wycombe Wanderers in Sky Bet League One.
