Exeter   1 - 1   Gillingham

Exeter 1-1 Gillingham

Exeter 1-1 Gillingham

Exeter and Gillingham had to settle for a point apiece in a scrappy encounter.

Simeon Jackson, Stuart Lewis and Dennis Oli all missed good chances, while Exeter keeper Paul Jones brilliantly kept out Rashid Yussuff's header.

The deadlock was finally broken when Richard Duffy's shot took a wicked deflection before nestling in the net.

Lewis's 18-yard drive flew into the top corner to draw Gillingham level, before Alex Russell's shot hit the post as Exeter almost snatched a winner.


Exeter City Manager Paul Tisdale tells BBC Radio Devon:

"We were a goal up and were hoping that would prove important.

"I think we finished the game very well, I think we were entitled to expect a goal in the last 15 minutes, but that being said I think we were terribly disjointed in the first half.

"In the second half I was disappointed that we finished evens - but we had a terrific crowd and I think we gave them something to bite on. It's an important point but obviously we'd rather have three."

Gillingham boss Mark Stimson told BBC Radio Kent:

"I thought in the first half we were outstanding, some great interplay and moving the ball around the pitch.

"I was disappointed to go in 0-0 at half time, but it hasn't happened much this season so we have to take that as a positive.

"Then Exeter scored a deflected goal, and, all credit to my players, they didn't give up.

"Stuart Lewis got his first goal for the club with a fantastic strike. If we hadn't got anything from the game it would have been a terrible journey home."
