Gillingham   1 - 1   Brighton

Gillingham v Brighton

Gillingham 1-1 Brighton

Alan Julian saved a late Glenn Murray penalty to earn 10-man Gillingham a priceless point in their battle to beat the drop as they drew with Brighton.

Adam El-Abd's headed in Elliott Bennett's corner for his first goal in two years to put the Seagulls ahead.

But after half-time Adam Miller latched on to Renee Howe's flick and tricked his way through before firing home.

Josh Gowling was then sent off for pulling back Murray in the area but Julian saved the spot-kick.


Gillingham manager Mark Stimson told BBC Radio Kent:
"It was a rollercoaster...it was a lot to take on.

"They've got a good goal from a corner but apart from that they didn't really threaten us.

"To come in at half time at 1-0 was disappointing but I said, 'this is it, let's so out there shoulders back, chest out and have a go at it' and full credit to the boys, they came out second-half and it was a proper test."

Brighton manager Gus Poyet told BBC Sussex:
"I didn't play today. I can do everything possible during the week. You put the team in there trying to do their best.

"They understand the way that we want to play, the way we want to pass and how we're going to defend.

"But afterwards it's up to you when you're in-front of the goalkeeper to finish the action. Unfortunately I can't do anything about that.

"As soon as you start missing chances the next one gets harder and harder."
