Bristol City made it three defeats on the trot for Gills after a late strike, before Gills went three unbeaten after wins against Crawley and Coventry were followed up with a 1-1 draw at Bradford.
However the inconsistency continued as Crewe took all three points from Priestfield before Craig Fagan’s goal was enough to win 1-0 at stadium:mk.
