Gillingham manager Evans impressed with Southampton iwinger Johnson on debut

Gillingham manager Steve Evans was impressed with Southampton Tyreke Johnson's debut for the club.

The 22-year-old winger joined the League One club last week on a season-long loan.

Johnson played 90 minutes in the loss to Burton Albion less than 24 hours after signing with his new club.

Asked about the winger's performance, Evans said: "The kid had a decent debut.

"He delivered a few superb crosses in the first period but he lacked quality service in that period.

"In the second half we pushed him up top and he created a few problems, he will be fine for us."
