Leaders Stockport held to goalless draw by Gillingham

League Two leaders Stockport were held to a cagey 0-0 draw at Gillingham.

The Gills made a bright start and almost took a fortuitous lead after just three minutes when Lewis Cass’ attempted clearance rebounded off Remeao Hutton and flew over the crossbar.

Stockport gradually grew into the contest and Antoni Sarcevic’s drilled a free-kick from the right flank almost caught Jake Turner off his line but the effort clattered off a post.

County continued to threaten before half time and Myles Hippolyte tested Turner with a rising 20-yard shot that the Gillingham goalkeeper tipped behind.

There were few chances early in the second half until Gillingham forced an opening as Jonny Williams’ header released Ashley Neasden in the area, but the forward fired over the crossbar from 10 yards.

Stockport almost netted a late winner as Neil Byrne controlled the ball in the area and teed up Paddy Madden, whose shot was blocked by Shadrach Ogie.

Both sides pressed for a winner late on but neither could find the breakthrough.
