Gillingham 1-0 Burton

Gillingham   1 - 0   Burton Albion

Cody McDonald's first goal for Gillingham proved to be enough as they defeated Burton to record only their second win of the season.

The Brewers were unlucky not to be ahead when Shaun Harrad's first-minute free-kick rattled the crossbar.

McDonald then headed against the bar himself when he met Chris Palmer's cross just before half time.

But the on-loan Norwich man was not to be denied and he headed home the winner after the break.


Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler told BBC Radio Kent:
"We were not as good as we have been playing but sometimes we have played really well and only come away with a point when we had deserved more.

"Second half Cody McDonald came alive, he'll come good, it's a good header, good ball in from Palmer and a nice win and clean sheet.

"All in all, that's an ugly win, we grinded it out. We defended for our lives."
