Oldham Athletic 0-0 Gillingham

Gillingham secured their first away point of the season with a goalless draw at Oldham.

Danny Philliskirk and James Dayton were denied by Gills keeper Stephen Bywater, while Dayton also fired off target.

Bywater later blocked Carl Winchester's shot and made a fingertip save from Philliskirk's low drive.

Gillingham's Cody McDonald forced a fine save from Paul Rachubka, while in stoppage time Oldham's Amari Morgan-Smith missed from close range.

Oldham manager Lee Johnson talks to BBC Radio Manchester:

Johnson on Oldham v Gillingham

"A couple of the chances were unbelievable chances.

"When we lost the ball, we generally won it back quite quickly.

"Between George Elokobi and James Wilson they've been quite formidable."
