Crawley Town 1-2 Gillingham

Jermaine McGlashan
Jermaine McGlashan has now scored five goals for Gillingham this season.

Jermaine McGlashan's late header gave Gillingham their first win in five games with victory over Crawley.

Crawley were temporarily down to 10 men, with Marvin Elliot off the field receiving treatment, when Bradley Dack slotted for the opener.

Izale McLeod then equalised for Crawley with a jinking run past John Egan before firing low past Glenn Morris.

But the visitors grabbed all three points when Dack's cross was headed downwards and in by McGlashan.

Gillingham remain in 14th place after the win, eight points clear of the relegation zone.

Crawley slip into the bottom four on goal difference after Notts County's draw with Scunthorpe.

Crawley Town manager Dean Saunders told BBC Sussex:

Saunders on Crawley v Gillingham

"Football has got a habit of slapping you in the face and we've just come off the back of winning three games, playing really well and then we put in a performance like that which I'm really disappointed with.

"There was so much at stake and we were just flat from the start, in the first half especially.

"There were no excuses today, we were just miles off it. We've got to get back to doing what we were doing and turn up against Crewe on Friday."
