18.30 Kick Off [ 4 - 1 - 3 - 2 ]

A half of few chances but the best occurs from Wimbledon who square a ball to Piggott who would score if he was a couple of feet further forward.

Chislet from 6 yards out sends his effort over the bar.

Longman forces a good save from Bonham.

19.15 Half time 0-0

The second half kicks off.

The Gills cross into the box and is flicked on by Ogilvie but the ball narrowly clears the post by half a yard.

Oliver has an effort which goes just wide of the post.

I read we played better in the second half, did you fall asleep and miss all the Gills shots and the excitement they created ?

This defeat made me feel like I did after losing to Burton.Another side that had not won many games,especially at their new home.We turned up and have given them the three points.The first half was poor especially,and as the game ticked on you think we will take a point with us not playing well,but they scored just before the 90 minute mark.Bonham should have been saving it really.

Portsmouth away next where we have had some good results,but we cannot play like Tuesday if we want to get something.
