Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler was content with a point following a 1-1 draw with Accrington but admits his side are faltering.

With just six minutes remaining in Saturday's League Two clash at Priestfield, substitute Ian Craney put the visitors on course for their first away win of the season. But Gillingham equalised just moments later through Luke Rooney's spot-kick after Lewis Moult was adjudged to have fouled Danny Kedwell in the box.

He said: A point was a fair result. I don't think we deserved to lose even though we conceded late on. I can't fault their effort, but there's something missing from our play at the moment.

"There's no excuses, we're not firing like we should be firing, but we can't hide behind anything. There's a bit of quality missing in the final third.

"I thought we defended fine, but neither keeper has been tested. We need to improve and quickly, and if we find what's missing we'll get back to where we should be. We're not pleased, but it's not a matter of life or death.

"We've got a good squad of players but they are not firing. We got off to a good start in the first month, but now we've got to go and win our next three games. There's no reason why we can't do that."
