(19.46) Kick Off [ 4 - 1 - 3 - 2 ]

(19.52) Charlton are through on goal but the cutback is behind the attacker in the box and the ball is cleared.

(19.56) Olly Lee, on the pitch with his brother on the opposite side, puts a ball in from the left side of the 6-yard box but the ball just misses Oliver and is cleared.

(19.59) Conor Washington for the visitors has a good chance to get on the scoresheet but blazes wide. The next attack sees a Blackett-Taylor header catch him by surprise and bounce wide.

(20.04) GOAL! Gillingham 0-1 Charlton Athletic: Lee

(20.16) Washington goes through on goal with just the 'keeper to beat from the left side of the box. Tucker slides in and gets just enough of the ball which rolls towards the goal and Cumming collects.

(20.24) Charlton pinball in front of the Rainham End ends with Cumming collecting after 2 or 3 attempts were blocked by a mass of Gills players in the area.

(20.32) Half time 0-1 (46:04)

(20.48) The second half kicks off.

(20.50) Sithole gets a shot away which is blocked by the hand of a defender. Huge appeals for a penalty are waved away.

(20.51) Oliver gets his head on to a cross which goes into the side netting and looks as if it hit the back of the net.

(20.53) Lloyd with a fierce drive is heading top corner but takes a deflection and into the arms of the 'keeper.

(20.57) A lung busting run down the left by Lloyd ends with a ball across the box which the 'keeper gets a faint touch to which takes it just behind Oliver who had the empty goal at his mercy.

(20.59) GOAL! Gillingham 1-1 Charlton Athletic: Own Goal
Dempsey curls in a shot which bounces off the post and on to the defender 3 yards out who could do nothing to prevent it bouncing in.

(21.06) 2 great saves from Cumming: a reaction save and a brilliant across goal dive to prevent a certain goal.

(21.16) Perfect cross from Lloyd finds Sithole from distance but the back of a defenders head gets just enough to prevent a simple Sithole tap in.

(21.19) Lloyd smashes a long drive off the inside of the post with most of the goal at his mercy.

(21.38) FULL TIME 1-1 (95:50)
