Well that was one of the dullest matches I’ve seen in a long time. County and Gillingham played out a boring 0-0 draw at Edgeley Park today in front of just under 4000 hardy souls.

Aside from a 15 minute spell at the start of the match dominated by the Hatters front-line, there was absolutely nothing to write home about for the remaining 80 minutes or so of the tie.

It was only Gillingham’s 5th away point of the season, and extends their away record without a win to 18 league games in a row.

George Donnelly, in his distinctive green booths, could have put County ahead after a succession of 4 corners from David Perkins. He turned his defender and spun in the box, but on the terrible bobbly surface he scuffed his shot and it was deflected wide for a corner.

Simeon Jackson, the Gills top scorer this season, was not looking threatening at all but had an early sight of goal when he got clear of Danny Swailes – Man Of The Match today for me – but blazed over fon Williams’ goal.

Paul Turnbull and David Perkins both could have found the net in an extremely lacklustre second half, but the negative Gillingham side were clearly playing for the draw once the game reached the 70 minute mark, and the match was seen out with no real incident.

Like I said…boring. Dullest match in a long time.

Danny Swailes and Paul Huntington did their miserly best to prevent any Gills goal-mouth action, and our partnership of Jabo and Donnelly posed no real threat on an off day for the pairing.

And you have to wonder, if we can’t grind out a win against a less than average Gillingham side at home, have we got any chance of survival at all this season? Probably not.

News coming soon tentative reports of Thai/Chinese businessmen sat in the Main Stand with Mark Maguire today. No, I’m not kidding!
