Gills believed at half-time they could fight back and get something at Bradford City.

The Bantams dominated the first half and led through Aaron McLean's first goal for the club after 10 minutes.

Boss Peter Taylor was disappointed with his side's start but insisted Gills felt they had an equaliser in them.

Belief was rewarded when Cody McDonald's 14th goal of the season, 10 minutes after the break, secured a 1-1 draw that keeps Gills eight points clear of the League 1 drop zone.

Taylor: "I was very pleased that we recovered as we didn't start well again.

"We knew Bradford start exceptionally well at home and we were looking to at least match that.

"They got the better of it. It was a very disappointing goal to concede because we had the ball, tried to play a bit of football and we just made the wrong decision in the end.

"We lost it and they got the chance to cross it and someone gets in front of our defender, which is disappointing.

"But at half-time we just believed we could get back in it if we stuck together and the boys certainly did that. 

"They worked exceptionally hard second half to get a very good goal and at least deserved a point."
