Gillingham 0-1 Fleetwood Town

Gareth Evans
Gareth Evans has now scored 12 goals for Fleetwood since signing in January 2013 from Rotherham

Gareth Evans marked his 100th appearance for Fleetwood with the only goal to lift the Cod Army to within four points of a play-off place.

Evans was quickest to react after goalkeeper Glenn Morris failed to keep hold of David Ball's cross.

Fleetwood almost doubled their tally five minutes later, but Ball fired wide after Evans had put him in on goal.

Morris saved well from Ball in the second half, while Luke Norris came closest for the home side.

Gillingham remain in 14th place in League One, nine points off the play-off places, having won just one of their last six matches.
