Gillingham have made a final offer for Chris Dickson, amount unknown, and are confident of sealing the deal. I don't think Dickson has ever found the transition from non-league easy. Of course, he has hadn't that many chances, although an injury just when it looked as if he might break into the first team did not help.
This does not leave much of a strike force at The Valley. Burton I regard as a Lisbie without the talent. What I mean by this is that Lisbie did sometimes score memorable goals, but kept missing sitters. You won't get the memorable goals with Burton, but you will get misses in front of an open goal.
I have never been that convinced by McLeod, but perhaps he has found his level at last. Otherwise we are left with the unknown quantity, Stuart Fleetwood.
