Gillingham boss Ady Pennock wasn’t hiding away from his team’s failings in a 1-1 home draw against Port Vale.
A Josh Parker goal in stoppage time gained the Gills a point but Pennock wasn’t impressed.

“It was a get out of jail card,” said the head coach, as Parker scored in the fifth minute of stoppage-time.
“We have to put our hands up, we were poor and when the half-time whistle went I was booing myself. I can understand the frustrations of the fans.
“It’s a point gained, especially with the performance, we just weren’t good enough.
“Port Vale won every second ball, first half and second, they were much brighter than us and seemed to have more energy.
“Our ball retention was awful, I am not going to give any excuses. It wasn’t good enough.
“I am not going to kid anyone, it’s no point me saying we did this and that, everyone could see for themselves, it wasn’t a very good performance at all.
“We got a point and that is what we are positive about."
