Gillingham   1 - 1   Norwich

Gillingham 1-1 Norwich

Gillingham 1-1 Norwich

Darel Russell's goal in the seventh minute of injury time rescued a point for a Norwich team reduced to 10 men.

Norwich keeper Fraser Forster was sent off in the 34th minute after he was adjudged to have felled Curtis Weston.

Simeon Jackson fired home his eighth goal of the season from the resulting penalty to give Gillingham the lead, but later missed three good chances.

With over 96 minutes gone, Grant Holt headed Adam Drury's corner back across goal for Russell to net from two yards.


Gillingham manager Mark Stimson told BBC Radio Kent:

"It was two points lost because I thought we had it, but these are big teams and you can see the quality they have got.

"We had some good opportunities and in the second half we should have kept the ball a bit better. Some of the decisions with the ball were poor and that undone us in the end."

Norwich manager Paul Lambert told BBC Radio Norfolk:

"I thought they were every bit as good as last week. With 10 men for most of the game they deserved something out of it.

"If you keep talking about referees every week then you take something away from the game, which was really good."
