Gillingham 1-0 Bristol Rovers

20 February 2010 06:22
Simeon Jackson's last-gasp winner against Bristol Rovers gave Gillingham's survival hopes a boost.Gills striker Renee Howe summed up a poor first half when he managed to blaze over from six yards from Chris Dickson's pull-back.

Rovers' best chance fell to substitute Elliot Richard, who broke clear but could not beat Darren Dennehy.

Jackson, a half-time substitute, sealed it when he drilled Adam Miller's pass into the bottom corner in injury time.



Gillingham manager Mark Stimson told BBC Radio Kent:





"We did everything but score before the goal.

"We kept answering questions of their goalkeeper and defence. It's been a long while since we won.

"We earned that reward and thankfully the little man (Jackson) put it in the bottom corner for us."
