Saturday 19th
Match day - Rochdale v Gills (League 1)

Sunday 20th
Before Rochdale, the Gills had managed 13 shots on target in 6 matches with the previous 3 games securing just 1 in each of them. After 14 minutes against Rochdale, the Gills had managed 4 and finished the game with 10. The home win over Oxford was the most in a match for the Gills this season (6), half the total of the highest amount won in a League 1 match.

Monday 21st
McKenzie's goal against Rochdale was the first time in 4 games that the Gills scored the opening goal. They had conceded the first goal in 17 of their previous 26 matches (65.4%) this season compared with 19 out of 43 (44.2%) last season.

Tuesday 22nd
The 4-0 lead over Rochdale going into stoppage time would have been their 8th by that scoreline away from home and the first since April 2011. The 4-1 scoreline at full time was the 14th away from home and their first since November 1999.

Wednesday 23rd
The Gills' 3-0 half time lead against Rochdale was their 2nd in an away game in 19 months, the previous being the 3-0 win at Blackpool. The last time they led 3-0 at the break at home was just over 8 years ago when the Gills beat Aldershot 4-0.

Thursday 24th
The Gills have won 3 of their last 4 away league matches and have scored 8 goals in those games. It has taken 8 home league matches for the Gills to have secured both 3 wins and 8 goals scored.
