Ady Pennock was happy to settle for a point against Millwall.
Gillingham held the lead for just five minutes on Saturday, in a game that finished 1-1.
It leaves the Gills perilously close to the drop-zone but a step in the right direction pleased the Gills head coach.
“It was a big point for us,” said Pennock.
“Millwall are a very good side, they are up there for a reason and Neil (Harris, the manager) has done a great job.
“They are physically strong and we knew how they play. I thought it was a very good point and we showed a lot of character.
“I am happy with the point. We wanted three but we were up against a very good side. Credit to all the players, they put in a good shift and the crowd were fantastic, they got behind the boys.”
Joe Quigley put the Gills infront with 67 minutes gone but Steve Morison levelled soon after.
Pennock said: “It was nice to get infront again, that was a big bonus. I was disappointed with the goal (we conceded) but it is what it is.
“In the first half, it was the first time since we (the current management team) have been here that we have put them (an opposition) under constant pressure. We had five or six corners first half and they were decent. I was pleased overall.
“We have to take a point and move on. It was a good point for us. These are a very good side and I am really looking forward to next week now.”
