Gillingham defender Joe Martin has criticised their performance in the goalless draw with Bradford City.

"The conditions were difficult, but I was disappointed with the way we played," Martin told BBC Radio Kent.

"It's been a mixed bag recently. We've been attacking well but not keeping it tight at the back.

"This time we defended well but weren't good going forward. It was strange, especially with the way we've been playing recently," he said.

In their previous four games, Gills scored 12 goals and conceded nine.

And Martin added: "There was definite disappointment in the dressing room, both in dropping two points and in the performance.

"Now we just have to look forward and make sure we get a result against Leyton Orient in the FA Cup."

The draw with Bradford was Gillingham's fifth game unbeaten, and put them into the play-off places in League Two, albeit 11 points behind leaders Southend.
