Jack Redshaw scored his fifth goal in six games to put the Shrimps ahead, opening the scoring as he had done at Barnet last weekend and against Northampton in midweek.

But the game followed a familiar pattern as Morecambe were once again unable to hang on, Bradley Dack levelling the scores in the 52nd minute with his first-ever Football League goal.

Bentley said: "It's disappointing that we haven't managed to win a game after taking the lead in three games.

"When you go into the break in the lead and playing well, it is all the more disappointing when you surrender the lead in the manner we did.

"But I have to give credit where it is due. They (Gillingham) are a top side and played some good stuff despite a poor pitch.

"But we have shown that we can match the best teams in the league when we are at our best and have now lost just once in six months at home, which is really promising for us.

"We looked solid throughout but unfortunately gave away a terrible goal that was a comedy of errors really and you can't afford to give sides as good as Gillingham that sort of opportunity.

"But overall it was a good solid display against a good side and I can't be too critical as some of my players are running on empty now."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
