Trollope left to rue late Gills winner

Simeon Jackson scored right at the death to leave the Pirates, who were without Chris Lines, Danny Coles and Jo Kuffour due to injury, still waiting for their first away win since September. Trollope said: "It looked for all the world as if we had done enough with putting our bodies on the line for 90 minutes to leave with a point, but poor defending right at the death has cost us. "The experienced players in my dressing room will know that there are times in a season when you come under the cosh, have to dig in, ride your luck out at times and grind out a result. "We didn't pass the ball well so you have to be organised, solid and resilient and to a large extent we were. It was just a shame we made the mistake of giving Jackson too much room in the final minutes."
