Saturday 13th
Match day - Charlton v Gills (League 1)

Sunday 14th
The Gills took 3 leads against Charlton after managing 13 in their previous 26 league games this season. This means 25% of the Gills league leads this season have come against the Addicks.

Monday 15th
Olly Lee's first minute goal was the Gills' first since Nov 2017 (in the 7-5 win over Reading U23s). None of the 15 goals scored since in the first 10 minutes have been in the first minute. The Gills had not scored a first minute goal in the league since December 2010.

Tuesday 16th
Match day - Gills v Peterborough (League 1)

Wednesday 17th
Just 31 of the 323 League 1 matches this season have been won by the side who conceded the first goal. Peterborough's comeback at the Gills was their 6th win after conceding first, 2 more than the next best side, and it almost as many as they have lost when conceding first (7).

Thursday 18th
The Gills home half time lead and subsequent defeat against Peterborough was the first time the opposition had overturned a deficit at the interval to win at Priestfield since April 2017 (Fleetwood), another 1-0 lead. The Gills 12 1-0 home leads since had returned 10 wins and 2 draws.

Friday 19th
The League 1 win percentage this season when behind at half time is just 7.4% but for Peterborough it is 57.1%! Their win at Priestfield was their 4th win from the 7 league games they were losing at the break. Those wins account for a quarter of all League 1 wins (16) after being behind at the break.
