Jon Backs Christian

Jon Harley says that Christian Dailly is not fazed by the adverse reaction he received from a minority of supporters on Saturday against Gillingham.

Christian, who played for Scotland midweek - like Andy Melville for Wales, he captained his country - was booed by some supporters early in the game against Gillingham at the weekend, but Jon insists it is water off a duck's back for the popular captain.

"Christian is a strong character, had a good game at the weekend, and nearly scored as well," he says.

"He will take no notice - he is a good enough player to shrug all that off.

"I think he can rise above that - he is experienced enough and good enough to do so.

"He did exceptionally well for us on Saturday and as a team we felt we owed the gaffer something against Gillingham.

"He was pleased that we bounced back to put ourselves up there again."

Of the game overall, he adds:

"Going into the game we were desperate for a win and with it 1-1 at half time I thought we were doing all right.

"We need to win as many games as we can, home games especially.

"We went out for a battle in the second half and won it, so we were happy.

"There was a lot of deserved criticism about us - we didn't do ourselves any justice the week before and we had to get the three points against Gillingham."
