Jackson: Scored brace

A Simeon Jackson brace saw Gillingham fight back from 2-0 down to earn a deserved draw at Bradford.

Leading scorer Peter Thorne put the home side in front after 20 minutes with his 10th goal of the season, firing into the net after his own header had rebounded off the crossbar.

Joe Colbeck then added a second on the stroke of half-time with a superb right foot shot.

But Jackson pulled a goal back for Gillingham after 51 minutes when Andy Barcham's shot rebounded into his path.

However, the visitors were then reduced to 10 men when Mark Bentley was sent off for a foul on Paul McLaren seven minutes later.

But Gillingham made light of this numerical disadvantage and equalised six minutes from the end when Jackson ran onto a through-pass from Nicky Southall to fire past keeper Rhys Evans for his second goal of the game.
