Gillingham’s League 1 season continued with a draw against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Saturday.

Another draw probably ends the outside chances Gillingham had of making automatic promotion but a nil-nil draw at Sheffield United was certainly a better result for us than our hosts!

Che Adams went close to giving Sheffield United the lead when he smashed an early chance against the crossbar but then Rory Donnelly went close for Gillingham.

Luke Norris went even closer to securing the three-points for the Gills but saw his effort kept out by Jay McEveley as he blocked on the goalline as we retained fifth place and are in a good position to a play-off finish but automatic promotion is looking a tall order.

Here’s a round up of the League 1 action from the other games played at the weekend….

These were the other results.

Saturday 9th April 2016
Barnsley 1-2 Chesterfield
Blackpool 0-1 Colchester
Bradford 1-0 Swindon
Bury 1-0 Doncaster
Millwall 3-1 Shrewsbury
Oldham 1-0 Walsall
Peterborough 1-2 Rochdale
Port Vale 3-0 Crewe
Scunthorpe 1-0 Burton
Sheff Utd 0-0 Gillingham
Southend 2-2 Fleetwood
Wigan 1-0 Coventry

They won at Wembley last week to secure the JPT but Barnsley (two-one) could struggle to make the play-offs now after losing to Chesterfield, who moved closer to safety with this win at Oakwell.

Colchester (one-nil) may yet pull off a remarkable relegation escape with a win at Blackpool to give them a little more hope of staying up with Pools remaining very much in the battle to stay in League 1 with Oldham’s (one-nil) bid to stay up also helped beating Walsall.

Bradford (one-nil) and Millwall (three-one) winning at home against Swindon and Shrewsbury, respectively, are looking as though play-off places are now secured with Wigan (one-nil) moving closer to winning the title with a win over Coventry to move away from Burton (one-nil) who were beaten at Scunthorpe.

Not only do we want you looking, as you are now, we’re also looking for your thoughts and views on this result, so do share some of those with your comments below.
