Oxford were denied a win against second placed Torquay courtesy of a last minute goal from Taiwo Atieno, after Adam Chapman put them back in the match scoring direct from a corner and Christian Montano headed the Yellows into the lead momentarily.
The result and Crewe Alexendra`s convincing 3-0 win over Bristol Rovers means the two sides are now level on points with four games to play.
Andy Hessenthaler`s Gills could go within 1 point of Oxford if they win on Saturday.
