15.03 Kick Off [ 4 - 4 - 2 ]

15.11
After a couple of half chances for the Gills (notably Oliver fluffing his lines on the edge of the 6 yard box), Ogilvie forces a good save from the keeper from his powerful header.

15.15
Shrewsbury win a corner after a previous corner was taken short, tapped around the edge of the box before a powerful drive is deflected over the bar.

15.25
A little flick forward is met by the head of a Shrewsbury attacker but Cundy stands firm to prevent him getting any power on the header and Bonham collects.

15.35
Shrewsbury should have scored. A side footed shot is heading into the bottom left corner but a retreating Cundy gets his heel on to the ball to deflect it just wide of the post.

15.48
Ogilvie stabs a tame effort goalward which hits the base of the post and bounces across the face of goal and out of play.

15.50 Half time 0-0 (46:57)

16.07
The second half kicks off.

16.17
Ogilvie has a vital interception from behind to prevent a shot shortly before a strong effort is parried by Bonham who then collects the loose ball as it falls.

16.20
Long throw from Jackson finds the head of Ogilvie but his header just clears the bar and falls on to the roof of the net.

16.24
Gills break after Samuel steals the ball. He drives forward with Oliver to his left however passes behind his forward partner who has to dig out an opportunity and blazes high over the bar.

16.30
Whalley blasts a rocket from 30 yards out which goes well wide of goal. On target, it would have been unstoppable and goal of the season certainty.

16.47
A Dempsey freekick deflects over the bar. The corner misses Lee and falls to Tucker whose effort is blocked. The ball is cleared but comes back and Oliver shoots just wide of the post.

16.52
A weak shot going well wide deflects off of Tucker closer to the goal and trickles narrowly wide of the left hand post.

16.56
The ball falls to Graham in the box and curls a shot which is saved by the keeper as the full time whistle goes.

16.56 FULL TIME 0-0 (95:53)

NIl -Nil against a team that scores an average of a goal a game, what has Priestfield become the place that all of a sudden everyone wants go to play well, do they think there going to Sunderland or Hull, yeah were at mighty Gillingham today let's play the best game we have all season against that great side.
No , once again we play a team way below us , and don't get a win LIKE WE SHOULD , if we were serious about a run at a playoff spot.
Now because we have played more games than those teams around us were going to end up going into free fall, as we watch Charlton and Ipswitch fight for the spot we occupied a couple of games ago.
Is the grumpy Scots contract up this year, or has he got one more year to go, not that I think anyone else who would apply for the job would be any better ?

I have been watching the Gills on line this season and whether it's the fact there's no atmosphere but I get totally bored. There just seems to be no actual football, we always have less possession and that is because the ball is lofted up in the air to Vadaine constantly which I admit he wins more often than not but mostly that is where it ends. I would just like us to play more football.

Hello Gills61 and welcome to the board.

I love watching the Gills on Sky and get quite excited when it happens. Its not the same as in person but still good. However, I just can't get excited by the iFollow games. I'm sure it is because I haven't seen a match in person since last February, the longest I have gone without seeing one. I often wonder if I would come away from games more enthused had I been walking away from Priestfield. I will never know for sure as I can't watch a game at home AND at the ground but I think I would be more excited by our play.

Not the best of games,but a point,and a clean sheet.Oliver and Ogilvie should have scored,but it seemed one of those days.6 unbeaten at home now,but two tough sway games to come in a week.
