Match ends, Shrewsbury Town 2, Gillingham 2.
Shrewsbury Town held high-flying Gillingham to a League One draw in foul conditions at the Greenhous Meadow.
Town took the lead when midfielder Ian Black's free-kick was headed into his own net by Deji Oshilaja.
But the Gills hit back through Cody McDonald's close-range finish and Ryan Jackson's stunning 25-yard drive.
The hosts had the last word when Scott Vernon teed up skipper James Collins to flick a shot past Stuart Nelson for his third goal in four games.
Coming on the back of Tuesday night's 4-2 win at Sheffield United, Micky Mellon's men are now two points clear of trouble.
Shrewsbury boss Micky Mellon told BBC Radio Shropshire:
"A very good point for us against a very good Gillingham side. The weather conditions were awful - the worst conditions since I've been here. It was driving rain, the wind was rough too."
"We have a number of qualities in this team. We'd have taken four points this week after going away to Sheffield United on Tuesday night.
"We have the players fitter than they've ever been. We have to be fit at this level for the mental toughness to keep going until the final whistle.
"And our goalkeeper is brilliant. I'm not surprised he's pulling off those type of saves. That's the greatest compliment I can pay him."
