Gillingham   3 - 1   Stockport

Gillingham 3-1 Stockport

Gillingham 3-1 Stockport

A sensational overhead kick from Dennis Oli set Gillingham on their way to a welcome win over a Stockport side that have now lost nine straight matches.

The striker connected perfectly to acrobatically guide Mark Bentley's flick-on into the net for the opener.

Febian Brandy made it two with a fine solo effort before John Nutter marked his 100th appearance for the club with an angled volley to make it 3-0.

Michael Rose's excellent shot reduced the deficit but there was no way back.

Gillingham manager Mark Stimson paid tribute to the supporters who helped make sure the team's home game with Stockport went ahead, by helping to clear the club's pitch of snow.


Gills boss Mark Stimson told BBC Radio Kent:

"We knew it was going to be a difficult game with the conditions.

"But all credit must go to the supporters who turned up to help the groundstaff yesterday and this morning, because they've worked around the clock."

"Then the boys came out, and, after a fantastic first half when we found ourselves 3-0 up, credit to Stockport for coming back into it second half.

"But I thought we were comfortable winners. And if it hadn't been for some excellent saves from Stockport's keeper, we could have had another couple."
