Gillingham extended their undefeated start to pre-season with a 2-2 draw at National League side Dover Athletic.

Gills have had some high-octane matchups with Dover in the past, most notably when they knocked us out of the FA Cup at Priestfield back in 2010.

But Saturday afternoon’s matchup at Crabble offered a somewhat more amicable meeting between the sides, as Adrian Pennock continued his rotation policy, with one lineup playing the first 60 minutes, and a second team taking over for the final half-hour.

Gillingham’s goals came from Conor Wilkinson‘s smart first-time finish and a close-range Luke O’Neill header. But a horrendous goalkeeping error from Tomas Holy and a late strike gave Dover a share of the spoils on another useful runout for the Gills.
