Wolves 2-2 Gillingham
Leon Clarke hit a stoppage-time equaliser to save Wolves from defeat to relegation-threatened Gillingham.

In a dramatic late twist Clarke, on as a 75th-minute replacement for Seol Ki-Hyeon, scrambled the ball home.

Gills had broken the deadlock in the 55th minute when Darius Henderson punished an error by Jody Craddock.

Kenny Miller converted a cross from Rob Edwards five minutes later but the visitors regained the lead in the 90th minute when Michael Flynn broke clear.

  • Wolves boss Glenn Hoddle:
    "If we had got those three points it would have camouflaged a below-par performance from us.

    "I thought we under-performed as a side.

    "The only people who are exempt from that are the substitutes because I thought Kevin Cooper and Leon did well to influence the game."

  • Gillingham boss Stan Ternent (on Leon Knight's equaliser):
    "First of all there was a foul on our centre-back and then the lad has handled it.

    "Sometimes you need a bit of a break to go your way, a break that makes all the difference, and things haven't been going for us lately.

    "I was pleased with our performance overall in what was a scrappy game because we've scored two away goals."
