Goals from Jason Pearce, Ricky Holmes and Josh Magennis secured a comprehensive victory for The Addicks

Gillingham boss Ady Pennock admits his side cannot keep relying on results from other games in their bid to survive relegation from League One after they were comfortably beaten 3-0 by Charlton yesterday.

Goals from Jason Pearce, Ricky Holmes and Josh Magennis secured a comprehensive victory for The Addicks at The Valley on Bank Holiday Monday.

Results elsewhere at the bottom of the table went in the Gills’ favour, but the club’s head coach insists there is no room for complacency, sitting four points from the drop with just two games remaining.

“The results have been kind to us, but we can’t keep relying on other people and it’s a big game next week against Fleetwood,” Pennock said.

“We’ve got to beat Fleetwood then we’ll be sitting much better than we are today.

“We’ve got to stay in this division and we’re still in a very good position to do that.

“It’s been an okay Easter – it could have been worse obviously, but I think last Friday was a massive result for us [beating Bristol Rovers 3-1).”
