Gills back to winning ways

Gillingham ended a run of seven games without victory as second-half goals from Simon King and Danny Kedwell saw them beat play-off rivals Torquay 2-0 at the Priestfield.

Torquay winger Danny Stevens rattled the woodwork inside 90 seconds, cutting in from the left and looping a right-foot effort on to far post.

Gills midfielder Jack Payne then saw a goalbound drive deflected wide by a great tackle from Lee Mansell, before Curtis Weston played in Jo Kuffour but Torquay scrambled clear.

Weston's free-kick from the right was headed over by the Kuffour, while Torquay's Mark Ellis also squandered a chance.

In the 51st minutes Danny Jackman's corner was flicked on by Kedwell and centre-half King met it with a perfectly timed diving header to claim his first goal in three years following an injury nightmare

Then with time almost up, Gavin Tomlin was brought down in the area by Joe Oastler, who was subsequently dismissed, and Kedwell scored from the spot.
