Bristol Rovers 1-1 Gillingham

Substitute Elliot List snatched a stoppage-time equaliser to earn Gillingham a battling point from a 1-1 draw at Bristol Rovers.

The 74th-minute replacement for Tom Eaves found room in a crowded penalty area to fire under diving goalkeeper Sam Slocombe in the fourth minute of added time.

Rovers had looked set to take all three points when one of their substitutes, Dom Telford, headed them in front after 86 minutes, latching onto the rebound when his initial shot was blocked.

But Gillingham never gave up and earned a share of the spoils from a drab end-of-season game.

Both sides went close in the first half. Eaves hit a post against his old club with a 26th-minute shot and Lee Martin was adjudged to be offside when netting from the rebound.

At the other end, Tom Nichols grazed an upright with a 30-yard drive after a neat turn to lose his marker and Ellis Harrison shot wide after latching onto a short back-pass from Bradley Garmston.
