Peterborough United 1-2 Gillingham

Justin Edinburgh
Justin Edinburgh was recently appointed Gillingham manager after leaving Newport County

Justin Edinburgh's reign as Gillingham manager got off to the perfect start with a win over Peterborough.

Posh's Shaun Brisley hit the underside of the bar early on before the Gills went ahead through Bradley Dack's shot.

Peterborough equalised when Luke James pulled the ball back to Jack Payne, who slid a left-footed shot into the net from the edge of the area.

The away side snatched the points when Milwall loanee John Marquis drilled in from Jake Hessenthaler's cut-back.
