My own opinions from the game:
Bonham 4.5 Should have done better with the goal
Partington 5 Struggled to win some defensive headers and too one footed going forward Lockyer 5 Physically dominated by Eaves Craig 5.5 Slows down the play every time it goes through him Martin 5 Limited with the ball though didn't come under too much trouble defensively
Bennett 5 A typical performance from him Sinclair 4 Offered little Lines 6 Often the only one looking to take responsibility to play the ball. Should be in the team more often Sercombe 7 Got going after the red card and unlucky not to have scored again with the post and a good block preventing him Rodman 5 Tried hard to press the Gills defence but pointless on his own. Missed the target with two identical chances
Nichols 6 Won more of the punts up to him than he deserved to. Set up Bennett for a good chance but should have done better with his tame header at the 'keeper
Subs: Payne 5 More effort than recent games at least but still struggled to hold the ball up Smith 4.5 Should have done better with the goal Matthews 5 Anonymous
Bonham 5 clearly out of sorts and has looked below par since the Scunthorpe game, Clarke alluded to a back spasm which is worrying.
Partington 5 he seems to have caught the Awful crossing disease that Leadbitter has always suffered from. Lockyer 6 ok but passing as erratic as ever. Craig 6 ok but still cant jump. Martin 6.5 average game from an average player
Bennett 6 flitted in and out, tried hard but as usual no end product. Sinclair 4 we all love the beard but his limitations have now become glaringly apparent. Lines 7 tried to get things moving,a rose amongst many thorns Sercombe 7 a very good second half and a great strike for the goal. Rodman 4 awful
Nichols 6 decent outside the box, a waste of space inside it.
Subs: Payne 6.5 showed effort and unlucky with a header.At least he seemed to have got his attitude right. Smith 4 I hope to god we dont have to have him in goal until January, he could have thrown his cap in the ball that drifted past him, Matthews 5.5 an improvement on Sincair, but he's suffering from being continually in and out the side. Crowd 5 small but got behind the team in the last twenty minutes. Ref 5 not his fault we lost. Gillingham 5 Christmas came a month early for them. They are a poor side and I fully expect us to be playing them in League Two next season.

Results in and Liam Sercombe was Man of the Match with a score of 6.68.
The 11 responses to this thread were the lowest number for a home match since Wycombe in December 2015. Oddly enough, that game was also the 20th league game of the season and also on a Tuesday night. The results were a bit different though- Taylor got a 9.9 rating that game, still the highest ever.
The starting XI average was 4.69.
As this was the 20th league game of the season, I'll update the season statistics thread shortly.
