It finally happened! Gillingham won a league game! At the eighth time of asking – and with a bizarre-looking team selection that had FOUR centre halves in the side, the Gills produced a battling performance to earn a 1-0 win against Charlton Athletic at Priestfield.
It was one of those remarkable games where the Gills – as has often happened down the years – raised themselves for a big game where few expected anything other than a defeat and produced a performance of grit and determination to get an unlikely victory.
Tom Eaves was the matchwinner, thanks to his second-half strike, but the Man of the Match was Czech stopper Tomas Holy, who pulled off a string of saves to keep the Addicks at bay.
