Shrewsbury Town 1-1 Gillingham

Shrewsbury Town had to come from behind as they drew 1-1 at home to Gillingham.

Stuart O'Keefe fired Gillingham ahead from the penalty spot just before half time, then Omar Beckles pulled Shrewsbury level in the second half.

Shrewsbury pushed for a first-half breakthrough with a long range Sean Goss free-kick over the bar before Josh Laurent exchanged passes with Daniel Udoh and saw his shot saved by Jack Bonham.

Gillingham goalkeeper Bonham was then called into action again when he denied Jason Cummings after the striker was set up by Laurent.

The visitors took the lead on 43 minutes when O'Keefe converted a penalty awarded after Ryan Giles challenged Tom O'Connor.

But Shrewsbury equalised in the 64th minute when defender Beckles turned in a low cross from the left by Goss.
