Gillingham came under a lot of pressure against Oxford United but three quality efforts earned him points

Goals from Vadaine Oliver and Jacob Mellis gave the Gills a two-goal lead at the break but Daniel Agyei struck home soon after the restart Nerves calmed down when Jordan Graham scored his fifth goal of the season

There has been just a change in Gillingham’s roster from their last league outing, with Declan Drysdale starting in place of Tom O’Connor, who missed out after being called up for international service

The visitors, wasted throughout, were back in the league after their last game was canceled late due to issues with Covid-19 Preparations for this one were not ideal as they were forced to change in a makeshift locker room in the Medway Stand family section, apparently due to the increase in coronavirus infections locally Many have chosen to get into their kit before leaving the team hotel

Visiting striker Daniel Agyei had an early shot blocked and a cross that was almost handed over by Matty Taylor, but he couldn’t beat Gills goalkeeper Jack Bonham, who made several saves in mid -time

Gillingham scored a goal ahead after 18 minutes when Graham’s cross was met by Oliver and he guided the header into the bottom corner

The lead was doubled four minutes later Ogilvie won the ball against former Gills player Sean Clare and when Mellisâ € ” the first attempt was blocked, the ball came back to him and he folded it at home on the half volley from the edge of the box

Oxford responded well and dominated the rest of the half How they didn’t score was a mystery Cameron Brannagan had the best of luck At two yards he screwed the ball wide as he All he had to do was touch Anthony Forde’s cross

Gillingham’s defense was getting a lot of effort and Bonham was in great shape, saving with his Taylor legs before a reflex block was even better to refuse Josh Ruffels Ogilvie was there to clear the line

The break couldn’t come fast enough for the Gills as Taylor led another chance in Bonham’s arms They reached half-time still with a 2-0 lead

Gillingham kept the same setup for the second half Mellis missed an early chance for the home side and within three minutes of the restart Oxford had a goal behind

Taylor got up to meet a cross, he couldn’t convert, but when the ball fell into the box, Agyei was there to take one foot out and the ball rolled

Another chance has come Gillsâ ???? way when Clare was dispossessed, losing to Graham, who let Mellis take the shot and he was punched right next to it

Oxford goalkeeper Simon Eastwood then made a superb save With his vision blocked by several players, he reached out to deflect a soft shot from Josh Eccles away from goal Soon after, Graham saw his free kick plunging just over the bar as the hosts enjoyed a good spell

Taylor should have equalized at 65 minutes, but the waste Oxford showed in the first half returned Forde’s excellent free-kick needed only a nod, but the forward in visit headed for the ground and the ball rebounded to clear the bar

Gillingham needed the safety of a two-goal cushion and they got it when Graham swept Ryan Jackson’s cross at 70 minutes

Bonham saved again to prevent Ruffels from a corner and frustrated the same player as he arrived late to head for the open play goal The Gills keeper was alert again to dive for the ball so that a corner fell at the feet of Elliot Moore and was deflected towards the goal

Oxford continued to fail in front of goal James Henry broke a good wide chance with 12 minutes left

Despite all of Oxford’s odds, Samuel could have made 4-1 Eastwood did well to save as he ended up free in the box Oliver couldn’t score the rebound

Henry blocked a few chances and Sam Winnall’s weak header was claimed by Bonham Samuel could have sealed him with a chance at the break but shot wide Oxford had more than 30 chances in the game and shot a free kick in the stoppage time over the bar
