Blackpool twice came from behind to share the spoils at Gillingham.
In a fast start Dean McDonald gave the hosts a headed lead after good work from Gary Mullingan, but within minutes Ben Burgess had poked in an equaliser.
Andrew Crofts restored Gillingham's lead, heading in Nicky Southall's corner, before skipper Michael Flynn saw his penalty saved by Paul Rachubka.
The Gills captain was left to rue that missed opportunity when David Fox found the top corner with a great free-kick.
