Gillingham’s fine start to the League 1 season continued with a win against Doncaster at Priestfield on Saturday.

Another Gillingham win, when a lead given to the Gills by Hessenthaler (66) at the midway stage of the second half that the assistant deemed had crossed the line, wasn’t pegged back this time with a one-nil win secured.

This latest win not only maintains an unbeaten start to the league campaign it also took the Gills back to the summit in League 1!

These were the match highlights.

The other results this weekend were as follows:-

Sat 5th September
Southend 2 – 1 Peterborough
Barnsley 1 – 2 Shrewsbury
Chesterfield 2 – 3 Wigan
Crewe 1 – 3 Swindon
Fleetwood 1 – 1 Rochdale
Gillingham 1 – 0 Doncaster
Oldham 1 – 2 Bradford
Scunthorpe 0 – 1 Blackpool
Walsall 0 – 1 Bury

Sun 6 Sep 2015
Burton 1 – 2 Coventry

Looking at these results, ahead of the fixture still to be played of course, the stand out ones have to be the wins for Southend and Blackpool?

Southend’s two-one win at Roots Hall against Peterborough, the early game on Saturday on Sky Sports, saw the Shrimpers record a first win back in League 1 since winning the play-off final in dramatic fashion against Wycombe in May.

A first win of the season, and indeed since January as a then Championship club, from Blackpool wouldn’t have been something many would have expected when the Tangerines went to Scunthorpe. But they did that with a one-nil win at Glanford Park!

Gillingham are back in action this weekend with a League 1 game against Blackpool, which also takes place at Bloomfield Road.
