Yeovil Town 2-2 Gillingham

Yeovil stay bottom of League One despite substitute Adam Morgan's injury-time penalty earning them a dramatic draw with Gillingham.

The Glovers started strongly and went ahead when Gozie Ugwu finished well from Byron Webster's flick-on.

Gillingham hit back to lead after John Marquis netted a rebound and Luke Norris fired home after a driving run.

But Morgan kept his nerve to score from the spot after Gavin Hoyte felled Joel Grant a minute into stoppage time.

Yeovil Town acting manager Terry Skiverton told BBC Somerset:

Skiverton on Yeovil v Gillingham

"Our old adage came back to haunt us. We've missed a couple of chances that were more than gilt-edged.

"When we were up in the game and the momentum was behind us, we could have put Gillingham to bed.

"Gillingham don't give up. They came back stronger.

"But we brought Adam Morgan in from the cold and the script was written for him."
