Fleetwood Town 1-1 Gillingham

Paddy Madden's 16th goal of the season was not enough as Fleetwood were held 1-1 by Gillingham.

In a contest badly affected by blustery conditions, substitute Alex Jakubiak earned the Gills a point as he struck with eight minutes to go.

Both sides struggled to create chances in a wind-affected first period.

Barry Fuller side-footed an early effort over the top for Gillingham, while Fleetwood replied with Wes Burns flashing a cross-shot narrowly off target.

In the 34th minute Fleetwood missed a great chance when Burns planted a header wide after dashing in to meet Madden's inch-perfect cross.

A minute before the interval the Gills' Stuart O'Keefe fired in a smart shot from 15 yards that was blocked close to the line by veteran defender Peter Clarke.

Fleetwood struck in the 56th minute when Josh Morris crossed in low from the left, and Madden was perfectly placed to slot home from eight yards.

Jakubiak equalised superbly, controlling well before curling right-footed past Billy Crellin from 18 yards.
