Gateshead 3 Fleetwood Town 3

Gateshead never really controlled this game and fell behind midway through the first half.

Adam Johnston got the Heed Army Level from the penalty spot after a Fleetwood Town Defender handled the ball in the box.

After the break Chris Hanson went straight through the heart of the Fleetwood defence and only had the keeper to beat but sent the ball across goal to find no Gateshead team mate there.

Yet again Gateshead fell behind after a poor build up play.

Steve Salvin got the Heed Army level once again, but 30 seconds later Davie Southern got Gateshead 3-2 in front with a cracking shot from outside the box. It was moment of pure genius!!!!

Just as before Gateshead's lack of communication let them down and Fleetwood Town got level late on in the game.

We did not deserve to win but did not show enough heart to hold on to what we had!!!
