Gateshead 2 Ossett 1

In a game where the was a major lack of communication Gateshead managed to pull off a 2-1 win.

In the first half many senior players seemed to have left there passion, fight and pride in the dressing room, with passes going a stay here there and everywhere.
These bad passes led to Ossett have many chance in front of goal. There goal came from a corner, Peter Keen was unable to get his hands on the ball and it fell to a Ossett player to slot home in the six yard box.

After the break Gateshead started a little better with chances falling to New Striker Mattie Moffat, but his first touch let him down.
On the hour Gateshead started to move through the gears and get a foot hold in the game.

Mattie Moffat levelled the score line with a goal that would have not looked out of place in a world cup final, a swift turn after he flicked the ball over the defender and lobbed the keeper who did get a finger to it. A real touch of class from Moffat.

Although Gateshead leveled the score they still looked shaky at the back, and the next goal was gonna be the winner.

The wining goal came for Gateshead when Ian Clark shot though a crowd and got a deflection to grab the winner in the dieing minutes of the game.

Not the best game to watch, but a win is a win.
