Boss Peter Taylor felt Gills were lacking at both ends in their 4-1 defeat at Barnsley.
Poor defending contributed to Conor Hourihane's long-range opener and a Sam Winnall header as the Tykes led 2-0 at half-time.
Gills carved out two decent chances for Jermaine McGlashan but neither were taken.
Barnsley added a third through Devante Cole and while Danny Kedwell replied, Dale Jennings completed the scoring.
Taylor said: "We got our wide players in - maybe could have done with a better end product - but some of the football we played in the first half was OK.
"You can say it's a great strike for the first goal but the way he got there with too much space was disappointing on our side of it and the second one was a cross, so again we're disappointed with that.
"It sets you back. I think we were doing OK. It was an even game and then you come in 2-0 down. Then you've got to get a goal pretty sharpish but they get the third and that's game, set and match. We go and get a goal back but it wasn't enough.
"If you play away from home and get in a couple of times, your end product's got to be good because all of a sudden you get the momentum, you get the goal and then it's a different day for you.
"But for us today there was no end product and unfortunately it's another day where we haven't done enough to be good defensively.
"We had a good enough team that started the match. Barnsley were better than us, simple as that."
