47' 0-1 Goal for Preston, Keith Keane scores. #gillslive
Beavon puts Barrett under early pressure but the centre-back clears the danger
46' 0-0 Second half has begun #gillslive
Players are back out for the second half, James Russell warms the players up and goes back to the dugout. Can Gills find something extra and get on top here?
Keep your comments coming, who's going to open the scoring? Plenty of options on the bench if Peter Taylor wants to change things.
We're off for a short break, join us for the second half where the Gills will be hoping, shooting towards the Rainham End, to get all three points from a Preston side who look very dangerous on the counter.
HT: 0-0 Probably a fair scoreline based on the 45 minutes. Neither keeper really tested but hosts look organised and well drilled #gillslive
HT: 0-0 Level game at the break, chances few and far between but #gills have played some nice stuff at times. #gillslive
Lee tries to find Cody Mac but the striker is stood still and hasn't made a run. The midfielder unimpressed but now the hosts forced to defend and Legge puts a cross out for a corner
There will be one added minute at the end of the half
Whelps back on the ball again seconds later but his cross is poor. Keds follows up and shoots but it takes a deflection and goes wide. However its come off the striker and a goal kick is given
Game has quietened down a touch in last minute or so, half time approaching. Nelson throws to Whelps on the left but he is quickly closed down
Harriman goes down in the opposing half and as a result can't track back. Lee fills in and Davies is unable to convert Humphrey's cross
Keds flicks on to Whelps who attempts to find Cody Mac. He stumbles so the ball gets away from him and Rudd now has a goal kick to take
Free kick for Gills which Harriman takes. Whelpdale refuses to shoot and instead mis places a pass looking for Lee. The visitors win it back with just seven minutes until the break
37' 0-0 No goals at Priestfield.Laird has put a shot wide & Harriman has struck over the bar but neither keeper really tested yet #gillslive
Laird strikes a great shot just wide of Nelson's left post. Harriman, having gone forward, doesn't get back and Legge can't intercept the pass. However the left back doesn't test the keeper.
Hollands does incredibly well to retain the ball with three Preston players giving him some hassle. He wins a free kick to resist some of the pressure and the home side begin another attack #gillslive
Corner for Preston. Humphrey thought about going down inside the box but stayed on his feet. Laird comes over to take the set piece
Harriman goes it alone down the right, cuts inside Laird and tries to find the top corner with his weaker foot. Great effort but just over
The resulting corner headed wide by Davies and Gills get the ball back. Martin tries to find Whelps down the left but Preston do enough to regain possession #gillslive
Nelson forced into a good save by Humphrey. Davies plays in Beavon who finds the winger sprinting down the flank, the keeper gets two hands to it and pushes wide
28' 0-0 Game a bit more even now, #gills having a bit more of the ball. Lee on a booking but the team looking calm and composed #gillslive
Nelson catches very well with the height a tad awkward for the Gills number one. Lee now on a yellow, he seemed very disappointed when the card was brandished but he goes in the book
Cross from Brownhill headed away by Legge and now Lee fouls Welsh. He is subsequently booked and Welsh himself will take the free kick
Harriman gets round Laird and tries to get inside the box, he goes down but no free kick given. Great attacking mentality from the right back but on this occasion thwarted
Lee does well to out jump Brownhill in the centre of the park, Kedwell wins a flick on but Preston do enough to push Gills back. Taylor passes on some instructions from the technical area
Cross by Hollands, headed away by Bailey Wright. Harriman hassles Beavon and Preston go back to Welsh . Some good closing down from the home side
Keane puts his shot wide after Beavon had spotted him unmarked inside the box. Its a poor effort though and clears the bar
Keep your comments coming in guys, Gills have played some good stuff at times in first quarter of an hour. Preston look threatening on the counter but so far the defence have stood up to the challenge #gillslive
Lee launches a throw to Barrett at the near post but accuracy is lacking a little bit and goes out of play before Adam can get a touch
17' 0-0 Decent game so far, Preston have had a few half chances but Nelson more or less untroubled. Clarke gets a yellow for a foul on Cody.
Charlie Lee applauds Gregory for some clever footwork before releasing Whelpdale on the right, he is quickly closed down as Hollands is beaten to the ball inside the box by Declan Rudd
Peter Taylor watching on from the dugout, he will be reasonably pleased with what he has seen so far, but Preston slowly exerting their authority and Gills will want to get on the ball a bit more to disrupt the flow
Gregory tries to find McDonald wide on the right, ball goes over the striker's head and it goes out of play. Just a bit heavy from the midfielder but a nice idea to get in behind the defence
11' 0-0 Preston have had more of the ball in last few moments but #gills looking good at the back. Laird puts a free kick over #gillslive
Beavon and Davies, as expected, looking solid up top for Preston. However at the moment the Gills back four doing enough to resist the pressure
Great flick on by McDonald who plays in Kedwell. Whelps makes a run through the centre but Preston deny him a one on one with a good interception
