GARY ROBERTS is looking forward to Town’s return home against League I leaders Norwich City on Saturday.
Today’s game at Gillingham was a fifth road trip in six matches, with only last weekend’s Leeds derby breaking the travelling.
“We’ve got an unbeaten home record to look after and it will be nice to play in front of our fans again,” he said.
“They’ve been top class both home and away, and even in the later stages at Southampton on Tuesday (when Town lost 5-0), they kept cheering.”
Roberts, of course, notched his seventh goal of the season in the 85th minute of last Saturday’s West Yorkshire derby to seal the 2-2 draw.
“Anthony Pilkington sent in a great cross from the right,” he said.
“I just thought to myself ‘keep going’. I caught it quite nicely with my left foot and ended up in the corner.
“I was pleased with the finish, a sidefoot volley, and maybe we could have had all three points, but it wasn’t to be. Now we have some more big home games coming up, starting with Norwich, and it’s a great chance for us to close the gap on those above us.”
Before today’s games, Norwich were seven points clear of second-placed Leeds, who have a game in hand (away to Tranmere on Tuesday).
