Posh were pitiful at Priestfield in the first-half before turning on the style with three goals in the first 21 minutes of the second-half.
There were some dogged defensive displays before the break before the attacking players strutted their stuff after the break.
RATINGS KEY: 10-Perfect, 9-Outstanding, 8-Very Good, 7-Good, 6-Okay, 5-Poor, 4-Very Poor.
CHRISTY PYM: Another game in which the Posh goalkeeper was rarely called into action. He was surrounded at corners and long throws, but had little direct action to deal with. He must give confidence to those in front of him though as he organises superbly 6.5
FRANKIE KENT: He dominated Oliver throughout that striker's time on the pitch. Formed a solid centre-back partnership with Beevers when Posh switched to 4-4-2 at the break. He's a consistently very good defender 7.5
NATHAN THOMPSON: He coped well with the aerial assault in the first-half and when moved to right-back for the second period he was very good both defensively and offensively. Had a big hand in the crucial first Posh goal albeit with a shot that should have been dealt with better by the Gills goalkeeper 7.5
MARK BEEVERS: Roughed up a bit by Akinde before the break, but he also made a couple of telling blocks and tackles. Outstanding in the second-half including one headed save of what looked like a certain goal 8.
