Past Encounters: Gillingham v Bristol Rovers

Take a look back at past encounters with Saturday's opponents, Gillingham F.C.

13 December 2017

Last season the two sides registered victories at home in the encounters between the two teams, as late goals from Chris Lines and Ellis Harrison secured a comeback win for Rovers at the Mem against Gillingham in October.

Rovers went behind in the game in the contest between the sides at the Mem, as Josh Wright fired Gillingham ahead on the stroke of the hour mark, but goals inside the closing ten minutes from Chris Lines and Ellis Harrison provided a dramatic victory for Rovers, with great scenes at the Mem when Ellis Harrison converted from close-range in stoppage time.

Rovers were defeated when they visited Gillingham later in the season, as Billy Bodin's penalty wasn't quite enough for Rovers to rescue a point at Priestfield, as a late brace from Cody McDonald allowed Gillingham to secure all three points on the day.

Take a look back at the highlights from that dramatic win at the Mem against Gillingham below.
