Gillingham 2-2 Blackpool: Seasiders move top of League One despite draw
Last Updated: 20/08/19 10:50pm
Blackpool extended their unbeaten start to the season after coming from two goals down to rescue a 2-2 draw against winless Gillingham.
The Gills took the lead after nine minutes, when striker Alex Jakubiak curled into the bottom corner following neat interplay with Barry Fuller.
Watford loanee Jakubiak then scored his third league goal in as many games with a stinging drive from close range, albeit with the help of Blackpool goalkeeper Jak Alnwick's poor parry.
However, Simon Grayson's side staged an impressive quick-fire comeback to level the game before the break.
Summer signing Sullay Kaikai opened his account for the Tangerines on 41 minutes, coolly firing past Jack Bonham having been neatly picked out by substitute Callum Guy.
After Curtis Tilt's powerful volley on the turn cannoned off the woodwork in the final minute of the half, Armand Gnanduillet rose highest to meet Liam Feeney's cross and head home the equaliser in stoppage time.
Kaikai almost completed the perfect comeback for the visitors, but his volley was brilliantly tipped wide by Bonham at point-blank range 11 minutes from time.
