Hughes spot-kick sinks Gills
Hughes placed his spot-kick low past goalkeeper Simon Royce after Matt Fry had been penalised for handball on the byline. Chris Lines had fired Rovers in front from 10 yards after 16 minutes only for Andy Barcham to conjure up a fine 40th-minute equaliser, curling home a right-footed shot from 25 yards. A strong wind and torrential rain made life difficult for both teams in a match of few clear chances. Royce made second-half saves from Danny Coles and substitute Darryl Duffy, but there was little to choose between the sides. By the end the players were slithering in all directions on a saturated surface.
