Gillingham boss gets dreaded vote of confidence

Gillingham chairman Paul Scally has backed under-fire manager Mark Stimson, insisting he still has a future at the League One club. The Gills are currently without a win in nine games and a large section of the Priestfield support were calling for Stimson to be sacked after Tuesday's demoralising home defeat by relegation rivals Tranmere.

"We must stick together. Everybody has a role to play - the manager, players and fans," Scally told the Kent Messenger.

"Mark Stimson is not a bad manager and will improve in time. The players are individually good but not gelling and the fans are understandably nervous. It's a very concerning time."
