Swindon hold out to draw with Gillingham

Swindon failed to find the net for the third game in a row but a resilient defensive display held Gillingham at bay to earn them a 0-0 draw.

The Robins arrived at their promotion-chasing hosts following consecutive 1-0 defeats and while they could not end their drought, goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux ensured they shared the spoils.

Rory Donnelly came within inches of opening the scoring inside the opening five minutes, lobbing Vigouroux before watching the ball bounce back off the post.

Bradley Dack hit the side netting on the half-hour mark shortly before Vigouroux saved Josh Wright's powerful effort and, at the other end, Jonathan Obika saw an effort well blocked by Max Ehmer on the stroke of half-time.

Dack's cut-back flashed across the six-yard box after he blocked a Yaser Kasim clearance and darted to the byline midway through the second half, while Donnelly headed a Doug Loft cross straight at Vigouroux.

Dack continued to threaten and he found John Egan late on but the defender fired just wide of the post.
