Stanley boss John Coleman gave his man-of-the-match to Terry Gornell after a superb show from the lone striker capped with his fifth goal of the season in the Gills thriller.
The 20-year-old twisted and turned to make the opener for Sean McConville and put Andy Parkinson in for the second before winning the second penalty and then capping a great display by getting on the scoresheet.
"It was a strange game, I have never been involved in anything like that before," said the former Tranmere man.
"The main thing is the win and I would take 7-4 in every game if it meant we got the win.
"I was happy with my performance, I set up the first and second goals and I was glad to get my goal. The main thing is we won and I am over the moon."
Gornell admitted though there was a bit of a dispute between him and Phil Edwards over the penalty-taking role.
"I wanted to take both of the penalties but the lads said Phil took them last year so I had to let him. I wanted to take them though," added Gornell.
