FLYING DOM’S DEBUT DELIGHT!
LOAN capture Dominic Samuel bagged a debut goal as Justin Edinburgh’s Gillingham came from behind to beat Bury and seize top spot in League One.
With previous top two Walsall and Burton Albion not in action, the Gills made the most of their big chance – but they had to do it the hard way.
Leon Clarke put the Shakers ahead in the fourth minute, but Reading loanee Samuel levelled two minutes later and John Egan put the Gills ahead with ten minutes played. Emmanuel Osadabe wrapped it up late on.
Coventry are behind the Gills on goal difference after a 3-1 win at Colchester, Jacob Murphy scoring twice. It sets up a mouth-watering clash between the Sky Blues and the Gills next Saturday.
In League Two, Plymouth Argyle continued their impressive form at the top of the table with a 2-1 win at Jackie McNamara’s York City.
Oxford United continue to lead the pursuit after a 1-0 victory against Cambridge United, making it a losing start for new U’s manager Shaun Derry.
