Gillingham   2 - 0   Huddersfield

Gillingham 2-0 Huddersfield

Gillingham 2-0 Huddersfield

Simeon Jackson grabbed a goal in each half to ease Gillingham's relegation fears and inflict a second defeat in five days against 10-man Huddersfield.

Jackson fired the Gills ahead from the corner of the box before Nathan Eccleston was sent off for a two-footed challenge on Stuart Lewis.

Jackson doubled the lead 20 seconds after the break from Rene Howe's flick.

Theo Robinson had an effort disallowed for the Terriers and Gary Roberts hit the post but the Gills held on.


Gillingham manager Mark Stimson told BBC Radio Kent:
"Some people would not have expected it but it was deserved against a strong Huddersfield side.

"It was two great finishes from Jacko and maybe with some better finishing we could have scored more goals.

"We set our stall out and tried to maintain that for as long as possible.

"It's a very good three points against a side that will probably end up in the play-off positions."

Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark told BBC Radio Leeds:

"26 minutes have cost us the game. The opening 25 minutes when it was 11 v 11 I thought we were very, very poor.

"We then go down to 10-men and the players responded excellently after that. But then we switch off at the start of the second half and it's game over then.

"But the players responded again and that was very pleased to see. With a bit more luck we could have got something from this game."
