Shrewsbury   0 - 0   Gillingham

Highlights - Shrewsbury 0-0 Gillingham

Shrewsbury 0-0 Gillingham

Promotion rivals Shrewsbury and Gillingham shared the points as they battled out a goalless draw.

In a first half of few chances, Matt Harold went closest for the Shrews with Adebayo Akinfenwa and Matt Lawrence creating opportunities for Gillingham.

Danny Jackman fired the home side's best chance over the bar just after the break, before Jon Taylor and Kevin Maher went close at the other end.

Shrewsbury's Ian Sharps saw red in the final minute for a professional foul.

Shrewsbury slip to fourth in League Two and Gillingham, who stretch their unbeaten run to seven matches, stay seventh.


Shrewsbury captain Ian Sharps told BBC Radio Shropshire:
"I'm annoyed with myself really - it was a bit of bad defending to get into that position - but I think the referee made the right decision.

"It was a tough game. Gillingham made it difficult by playing 4-5-1 with the big lad up front.

"We didn't test their keeper enough though, which was poor.

"Obviously a clean sheet's good for the team and we're happy with that, but the sending-off was a sour note at the end."
