[ 7 Aug 21] GILLS v Lincoln Match Thread

Postby Garawa » Sun Aug 01, 2021 9:45 pm

- After starting the season away from home 4 years in a row, the Gills open at Priestfield for the second year in a row. Their record when starting at home is W29, D23, L15 and, since 2001/2, they have won 6 of the 8 games.
- Both meetings with Lincoln last season were won 0-3 by the away side. The home side has won just once in 7 meetings - a 1-0 home win for the Gills in November 2019.
- The Gills have kept sheets against Lincoln in 4 of the last 5 meetings. The other was a 0-3 loss at home to Lincoln, 1 of 3 wins for Lincoln in their last 4 visits to Priestfield.
- After 17 wins in their opening 28 league games, Lincoln finished the season with 5 in their final 18 however 3 of those came in their final 5 league matches on the road.
- Lincoln conceded 6 goals in their first 14 away league games but conceded 3 in both of their final 2 away games in the regular league campaign. They let in 14 goals in their final 9 away league games.
- Lincoln enjoyed the joint highest number of away clean sheets last season (12). 3 came in their final 5 games on the road after none were secured in the 5 before. They followed 9 away clean sheets in 11.
- Lincoln scored the joint highest number of 2nd half goals last season (46) - the same number as the total scored by Ipswich and more than the totals managed by Northampton and Bristol Rovers.


(15.02) Kick Off [ 4 - 2 - 3 - 1 ]
The match is preceded by a minutes silence for all those who lost their lives to Covid in the 526 days since fans were last inside Priestfield.

(15.06) GOAL! Gillingham 0-1 Lincoln City: Edun

(15.31) Oliver slams a header against the bar and the follow-up is well saved from Ehmer.

(15.42) Olly Lee twists and tricks his way around the Lincoln defence. He finds a shot but Oliver is flagged offside.

(15.45) Oliver forces a very good stop from the 'keeper. As the ball comes back to him, he draws a foul on the edge of the box which Dempsey takes. It hits the wall before the 'keeper fumbles it after a scramble in the box.

(15.46) GOAL! Gillingham 1-1 Lincoln: Lloyd-McGoldrick

(15.53) Half time 1-1

(16.09) The second half kicks off.

(16.17) Tutonda provides a goal-saving block to deny the visitors a second lead in the match.

(16.30) Oliver goes through on goal and attempts to chip the 'keeper only to chip into his hands.

(16.36) Carayol, a minute after coming on and gaining international clearance just before kick-off, takes a couple of great touches before drilling a shot just wide.

(16.58) FULL TIME 1-1

A good point against a good side to start the season with. A blow to go 0-1 down so early,but we got the equaliser and unlucky not to win it late on.
