Gateshead 0 Harrogate Railway 1

A hungry Harrogate Railway team came to the International Stadium on Monday night, in the first half Harrogate Railway looked slightly the better side with some good passing and movement off the ball. 0-0 at halftime.

In the second half Gateshead started to change gear and get a better grip in the game, with Gateshead hitting the wood work on a few occasions. Davie Southern rattled the cross bar mid way through the second half.

The Nail in the coffin was a bit shady to say the least with a Harrogate Railway striker bear hugging Chris Hanson in the Gateshead Box, and got a goal seconds after. The ref did have a white stick moment.
