New boy Brandy impressing Gills

Febian Brandy has had loan spells both at Swansea and Hereford

Gillingham's new loan signing Febian Brandy is impressing his team mates, according to midfielder Mark Bentley.

The Manchester United striker won a penalty for the second game running in Saturday's 1-0 win over Oldham.

Bentley told BBC Radio Kent that teams are struggling to cope with his skill, saying: "His feet are frightening.

"One minute you think a defender is going to get it and then he knocks it past him. He saw a leg there and he fell over, which a lot of strikers do."

"He's really positive for us," added Bentley.

Bentley captained the Gills during their win over Oldham, as regular skipper Barry Fuller was suspended.

"I loved it," he admitted. "The gaffer pulled me aside on Friday and said I was going to be captain and I was delighted.

"To be captain at any sport is a massive plus for me. I really enjoyed leading the lads out and it's something I'll remember.

"You never know, if Barry unfortunately gets himself suspended again - which no doubt he will because that's the way he plays - I might be able to get it again."
