Gateshead 2 Ilkeston Town 1

A good home against a strong Physical Ilkeston side, but Ilkeston start the better
in the first half.
The Ilkeston Goal came after a shot which Simon Bishop saved but he didnt hold on to it and the loose ball was put in the back of the net by Chris Adam.
Gateshead Didn't get into the game till just before half time when Craig "BECKHAM" Baxter whipped in a perfect ball for Chris Hughes to nod home.
After the break Gateshead started to move through the gears and start to pile the pressure on the Ilkeston attack.
Niel Tarrant opened his Gateshead Goal account to give a good home win for the Heed Army.
