GILLINGHAM boss Steve Evans hailed Cherries loanee Mikael Ndjoli "the best finisher at the football club" after he netted twice for the Gills on Saturday.

The striker, who has joined the League One side for the 2019-20 campaign, netted his first league goals of the season in a 2-0 win over then leaders Wycombe Wanderers at Priestfield.

The 20-year-old broke the deadlock on the hour mark before tucking away a penalty past former Cherries goalkeeper Ryan Allsop for Steve Evans's side, earning victory over his fellow Cherries academy graduate Nnamdi Ofoborh, who started for the Chairboys.

Discussing Ndjoli's performance, Evans told Kent Online: "He is an outstanding finisher, the best finisher at the football club.

"He is still learning. He wasn't overly involved in the play for the full 90, he was giving it away.

"His touch wasn't quite right but sometimes that comes from not being in the team anyway and not being up to speed."

He added: "I go back to the two comments from Steve Clarke (Ndjoli's boss during a loan spell at Kilmarnock last season) and Eddie Howe. They said if you make chances he will put them in the net.

"His first finish, it was absolutely tremendous, with the outside of his foot it swerves in. It is the only way to beat the keeper.

"The senior staff there at Bournemouth all said he was young, he still needed developing, he has all the attributes, like Callum Wilson.

"He has pace and he gets in behind and if you make a chance, he will take it. We are pleased for Mika."
