Gillingham 0-0 Hereford

Gillingham remain in a play-off place despite being held to a goalless draw by Hereford.

Gills top scorer Cody McDonald hit the post early on and Adebayo Akinfenwa forced a superb save from Bulls keeper Adam Bartlett.

Andy Hessenthaler's side stretched their unbeaten run to 14 games but could not break down their opponents.

Hereford held on for a point and might have taken all three but Stuart Fleetwood spurned their best chance.

POST-MATCH REACTION

Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler told BBC Radio Kent:

"Not good enough, simple. OK, we got a point but the players know we have got to do far better than that.

"They frustrated us, the ref frustrated us because everything was stop-start and it got to us.

"It wasn't us and we didn't see that coming. We should have been full of confidence but we didn't turn up."

Hereford striker Stuart Fleetwood told BBC Hereford and Worcester:

"We knew their wingers were dangerous so we had Kenny (Lunt) in there as the holding player as a bit of security.

"I was up top on my own again with Steve Leslie and Joe Colbeck trying to join in with me.

"But we defended fantastically and apart from the first two minutes when McDonald went through, I don't think they had any other clear cut chances."
