Palace lose to Gillingham

Crystal Palace slipped to a 1-0 defeat at home to Gillingham in their final pre-season game.

Palalce fielded a weakened side against the League One outfit, and the score showed the outcome .

A very poor fit half, only Alessane N'Diaye went close for the home side as the Gills were restricted to pop shots at goal.

The match picked up after the break with Alan Lee firing over for Palace, then Gillingham's Adam Miller saw his 25 yard strike smash against the bar.

Gillingham stopper Alan Julian made a good save to deny Sean Scannell's shot after an excellent driving run from the winger. N'Diaye should have put Palace in front but wasted the chance from eight yards out.

And Palace were made to pay for that miss as Gillingham netted through Jack Payne who converted Andy Barcham's low cross.

Palace: Flahavan, John (Abnett 70), Carle (Adelakun 83), Hills, Lawrence, Butterfield (Nnamani 83), Ertl, Pinney (Lee, 45), Cadogan, Comley (Scannell), N'Diaye (Holness).

Not used: Thomas, Wright, Mann.
