Gillingham maintained their five-point lead at the top of League Two after Adam Barrett secured a late 2-2 draw at Plymouth.

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
