Bristol Rovers left it late to come from behind and take all three points at The Memorial Stadium.

Darrell Clarke recalled top scorer Matty Taylor to start a long side Rory Gaffney. Charlie Colkett was also handed a starting role in the centre of midfielder as Darrell Clarke started with a 3-5-2 formation.

The first half was a low key affair with the best chance falling to Stuart Sinclair who fired wide. The second half saw Gillingham take the lead when Josh Wright found himself unmarked at the far post and fired home.

Rovers pushed to get levell and on 82 minutes Chris Lines burst clear after a 1-2 with Matty Taylor and fired home. Rovers continued to push forward searching for the winner and it came in the 90th minute when Ellis Harrison fired home from close range to make it 2-1.

Rovers up to 8th after the win and next face MK Dons away on Tuesday night.
