Gillingham 2-2 Shrewsbury

Grant Holt's late double earned a draw for Shrewsbury and denied Gillingham a spot in the automatic promotion places.

Curtis Weston's early rocket of a shot and Nicky Southall's goal after a Simeon Jackson backheel looked to have earned the Gills a third straight win.

Substitute Moses Ashikodi missed a great chance to put the Shrews back in contention but hit the bar.

On 79 minutes Holt netted from the spot after a push on Ashikodi and he headed in Chris Humphrey's cross for the draw.
