Craig Fagan led the praise for two-goal hero Cody McDonald on Sunday.
McDonald scored an injury-time goal to earn the Gills a point against Walsall.
“The first goal wouldn’t have looked out of place in the Premier League,” said Gillingham’s former Premiership player.
“He then he showed his hunger for the second one. He did well to carry on playing, even though he was fouled and he managed to score the goal which got us back in the game.
“That is the sort of attitude he needs to kick on and go to the next level and he is showing that.
Things had looked good in the 90th minute, after Walsall’s Julian Gray came off the bench to put them 2-1 up.
“We were disappointed to have gone 2-1 down,” said the 31-year-old, who was back in the starting XI after recovering from a groin strain.
“We had worked hard in the game to get the draw and a point but the lads dug deep. They didn’t give in and luckily it went our way and Cody put the ball in the net.
“We had a couple of chances, where we hit the bar and on another day they go in, but looking at the bigger picture, a point was a decent result out of the game.”
