Gillingham extended their 100 per cent record at home this season as they came from behind to thrash 10-man Fleetwood.

Without a win in League One since August, the visitors went ahead through Bobby Grant's curling free-kick.

Rory Donnelly converted at the back post to level and Chelsea loanee Jordan Houghton headed the Kent side in front.

John Egan's strike and Donnelly's deft chip made it 4-1 at the break, and Cody McDonald added a fifth before Eggert Jonsson was sent off for two bookings.

Gillingham stay third in the table, but struggling Fleetwood drop a place to 20th after their defeat.
