The shotstopper has also echoed the thoughts of manager Graham Alexander, saying that the performances have been to a very good standard in the last couple of games and the results will come if United continue to work hard.

Gilks spoke to iFollow Iron before this weekend's game, offering his thoughts on Peterborough, the division being strong and the confidence within the squad.

ON THE 1-1 DRAW WITH FLEETWOOD…
MG: The dressing room wasn’t the best place to be after the game, but it is was it is and unfortunately we ended up drawing the game. I said in the changing room that we stopped the rot, so to speak, and we’ve got a point out of it, although we should have won it. We have to move and look forward to Peterborough coming to Glanford Park and going again, hopefully getting three points.

ON PETERBOROUGH UNITED…
MG: They are a team who probably have a bit of confidence after coming back (from behind against Southend) on Tuesday. They’ve had an alright start, so it should be an interesting game. Within the league, anybody can beat anybody. They’re not going to come here and think they’re going to want to hang onto anything. They will come here wanting to win the game, like we will be. Hopefully we can come out on top.

ON THE GOOD PERFORMANCES…
MG: The manager spoke of that after the Rotherham game, despite the defeat. We were creating a lot of chances and we took that into the game on Tuesday. We were comfortable and just couldn’t see the game out. We would have like the second goal, obviously, but it wasn’t to be.

ON THE LEAGUE BEING TIGHT…
MG: You can have two or three wins and then you’re right back up there. When you look at it like that after a defeat, it’s not such a dire situation. We are only 14 games into the season and we have just got to get back to what we do best, which is working hard. We’ve got to really dig in now, pick ourselves up, and go again on Saturday.
