Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler has praised captain Andy Frampton for apologising for his performance in Saturday's 4-3 win over Northampton.

The 31-year-old defender stood up after the League Two game at Priestfield to say sorry for not playing well.

Hessenthaler told BBC Radio Kent: "He went round and apologised to all the players and that he got out of jail with our forwards.

"I don't mind players like that, he's honest. I like honest players."

Gillingham led 3-1 at half-time but lost their lead as Northampton came back to make it 3-3 before Danny Kedwell scored a late penalty to give Gillingham the victory.

Hessenthaler added: "He felt he wasn't on his game. But that's the honesty he's got. I work with players like that week-in week-out and I don't mind that. He wasn't the only one. As a group we could have done better."

It was Frampton's first start since 1 October because of a calf injury.
