19.45 Kick Off [ 4 - 4 - 1 - 1 ]

A good Gills break comes to Dempsey. He uses some clever feet to trick the defence, flick the ball forward for MacDonald but the pass is just a little strong. Gills causing lots for the defence already.

GOAL! Peterborough 0-1 Gillingham: Ogilvie

Gills in charge and mopping up Posh attacks at the back. Dembele has several chances to equalise but is forced wide before Tucker clears. Clarke-Harris shouts for a pen but goes ignored.

20.34 Half time 0-1
Just 19 of the 495 League 1 matches completed so far have been won after losing at half time. Peterborough have been involved in 4 of those 19 and their home record when losing at the break is W2, D0, L1.

The second half kicks off.

Szmodics smashes a ferocious shot off the face of the bar.

Straight up the other end, Lee turns and shoots in the box but the ball goes just wide of the post.

Gills charge down a Peterborough shot with a last ditch challenge and a follow up shot is deflected into the arms of Bonham.

Butler crosses to the back post is met by Taylor but finds a good save to his right from Bonham.

Dembele with a good run. The ball is cleared as far as Hamilton who goes for power and somehow sees his left footed effort whiz inches past the post.

Samuel forces a great save from the Peterborough 'keeper.

21.43 FULL-TIME 0-1

We have, another year to regret those loses to the teams we" should have " beaten but didn't. Am I right assuming that Evans will be the manager next year ? We needed a couple of top notch goal scorers for the whole season, you can't win without them. Look at the top of the table Goal Difference,there is Hull 40, Peterboro 33, Sunderland 27, Lincoln 21, Gillingham 2,were never going to get into a play off spot with a GD like that, even if we were level on points. GO GILLS finish the season big,give us hope for next season.

A really good win against a really good side.Great to be able to get a clean sheet and the win,especially after the hurtful defeat a few days before at Oxford.A really good finish into the corner from Ogilvie.We had to defend really well to secure the win,right up until 97 minutes.Hopefully we can get the win at home to Northampton.They will be fighting for their lives,but our home firm is decent at the moment.
