Peterborough United 1-1 Gillingham

Gillingham continued their unbeaten start to the League One season but were denied victory by Jon Taylor's late leveller for Peterborough.

A dramatic final 10 minutes saw the Gills hit the post through Luke Norris, before they took the lead when the same player set up Adedeji Oshilaja.

Posh went close when Kyle Vassell hit the bar with a long-range volley.

But Taylor popped up to convert a low Marcus Maddison cross and end a three-game losing run for the home side.
