Gillingham boss Steve Lovell saluted his side’s never say die attitude.
Defender Max Ehmer struck an equalising goal three minutes into stoppage time on Saturday, against Peterborough United.
Lovell said: “It’s the way we train, the way we prepare, the personnel and the characters, they don’t give up.
“We got that goal from Jake (Hessenthaler). He got us that goal, chasing their fella all the way back, the ball went out of play into the stand, he jumped into the stand, and got the ball. That is where we got our goal, in that movement.
“You should never give up, you always have a chance, right to the last minute, he epitomised all our boys in second half.
“The conditions were awful, it was a horrible day, both teams went out there and had a go. They got their goal but then we fought back, as we do.
“We never say die, we roll our sleeves up, go right to the end and got an equaliser which is was what we deserved.
“It wasn’t a brilliant performance, but it was a hard-working performance that got us the point. I am very happy with the point.”
The Gills had their second biggest attendance of the season for the match and those fans helped keep the team going at the end.
“They helped us tremendously,” added Lovell. “They had something to cheer about but first half I don’t think they had anything, it was a very lacklustre performance by both teams really.
“They had a lot of possession and passed it around, nothing really infront of goal, but then second half it opened up a little bit and they had to sit a little bit deeper to try and keep the three points.
“In the last 15 minutes we started playing in areas that would hurt them.
“We got some good balls in the box but we didn’t have anyone attacking it, the keeper came and got a lot of balls that he shouldn’t be getting. People should be challenging, but it was a very good point.”
