Gills boss Peter Taylor was pleased with his side’s performance on Saturday but frustrated by the goal they conceded.
Home striker Shaun Harrad headed the winner for County from 35 minutes.
But the winning goal was all too easy according to Taylor.
He said: “I was very pleased with the response and the way we played for the 90 minutes to be honest, but I was very disappointed with the goal we conceded, because their man got his head to it better than ours.
“I think we’ve got to learn from that and that’s the type of thing that was happening too much last year.
“I was disappointed because we should have been done better with the cross. I am more happier than not, on the strength of the way we passed the ball, especially in the second half.
“I thought we tried to pass the ball around and we created some good chances in the second half. It’s just a shame that we have come away with nothing again.
“We’ve got to believe that if we keep doing what we are doing then the results will change.“
Taylor was certainly a lot more content than last week, as the Gills conceded twice late on to lose against Sheffield United, in a game where they were second best for much of the game.
Taylor said: “We were unlucky last week on the strength of the lateness of the two goals but (on Saturday) I think we deserved to get something out of it.
“As long as we deserved something then I am happy with it. We can then build on certain things.”
