Video: Millwall striker scores twice for Gillingham in win

JOHN Marquis bagged a brace for loan club Gillingham as they recorded a 3-2 victory over Oldham Athletic in League One on Saturday.

Marquis joined the Kent club on an initial month's loan at the start of January but that deal looks likely to be extended following his recent goalscoring form.

The 22-year-old was also on target in Gillingham's 3-1 win against Coventry the previous week.

      @Millwall1979: loan him till the end of the season. He's still only young and still learning. He may not of done it yet for us but he's got his best years ahead of him.

        @Aaron:

        Disagree he has been around the first team now for around four years ? Correct me if I am wrong in my view should have developed and time to let him go and let the likes of Aidan and Alfie pavey see what they can do

          @Millwall1979: So what you are saying is Marquis would be good for us IF we get relegated since he is scoring goals in League 1?? That's not a bad thing to have then??

          I agree he has been around for years but he took those goals pretty well, could be a late developer or could score loads of goals in league 1 get some confidence and come back here and score goals... remember he is a Millwall fan, so will always give 100% and you can't put a price on that!!

            @Bradders:

            If I was saying that I would be saying that I am prepared to accept league one next season

            Can we afford to keep paying wages to someone who may make it in a few years or use that money on someone who can come in and do a job ?

            I think the likes of pavey and o brien deserve the chance(s) he has had and not took

            Agree he is millwall mate but then so was robbo, dunne etc are they good enough to keep us up or take us to the next level no they are not

            We haven't got the money to be sentimental with players contracts

            @Millwall1979: I'm not by any means accepting relegation but what if we sold him in January to Gillingham for 250k (for example) and we end up getting relegated??

            Marquis is a different type of player to OBrien and Pavey, Marquis is a lump of a forward, like a Hoff.... isn't pretty but does a job, if he can score goals and get confidence then no reason why he still can't do it here!.... He isn't on a lot at all trust me!

            @Bradders:
            Firstly if they offered 250k bite there hand off

            I wouldn't say he was a lump he don't win much in air either

            Clear the decks and start again it's only way out of the rut the bald idiot needs to be ruthless and fair play (I been his biggest critic) he seems to be doing that

            The squad needs trimming and for every three midfielders say (Chaplow, bailey , Wright ) he needs one player of quality in and someone who will push to get in squad same goes for upfront and defence

    This is disturbing,before you know it we will be abandoning any attempt to sign a decent striker and Holloway and Ambler will be on here telling us Marquis is the answer to all our prayers!

      @norris: Too true. A goal-scorer should be No 1 target.
      But that will mean spending money.
