Tom Eaves nodded in a 90th-minute equaliser as Gillingham snatched a point with a 1-1 draw against Blackpool.
The Seasiders looked to be set for back-to-back wins after Kyle Vassell put them ahead in the first half.
Blackpool began on the front foot, twice seeing deflected efforts just wide before Colin Daniel's 10th-minute header from Kelvin Mellor's cross was inches past the near post.
But Gillingham had a golden chance to go ahead early on as Lee Martin's superb whipped cross was met by a diving Gabriel Zakuani, only for his header from six yards to go wide.
Blackpool however had the lead in the 40th minute through top-scorer Vassell.
Kelvin Mellor's mazy run split the Gillingham defence and the ball eventually dropped for Vassell, who lashed home from 18 yards.
Gillingham should have equalised as Blackpool's defence allowed the ball to drop to Conor Wilkinson, but he scuffed wide from 12 yards.
But Eaves made no mistake when picked out by Luke O'Neil's cross and made it four games unbeaten for Gillingham
