Gateshead 4 AFC Telford 3

Gateshead fans often wonder why do we follow our team around the country and support them win lose or draw.

Gateshead Fans Got their answer on Monday the 26th of March at the international stadium!!!

In front of a bumper crowd of 500 plus the Heed Army took on the the Unibond League leaders and show them how it was done.

Although Gateshead fell behind to a early goal from Telford, they never let there heads drop and got one back soon after.

A Davie Southern cross found Defender Jamie Curtis rising like a salmon in the box, to head a powerful header straight past the Telford keeper.

Gatesheads second goal came from a great through ball that beat the offside trap to find Mattie Mofatt who slotted the ball home like a brazilian Genius!!!!

2-1 at half time

Gateshead started the Second half in the same form as they finished the first, all over the Telford defence.

Davie Southern Bagged the third goal after a great solo run into the box, he sent the Heed Army wild in the stand!!!!

But Telford showed why they have been top of the league for much of the season and showed some fight.

A Good cross in the box gave Telford their second goal of the game with James Curtis getting a cut on his head when Telford scored from the cross.

With Curtis off the field receiving treatment for the heed injury Telford got a little bit of luck when a poor Chris Mason clearance was intercepted by the Telford forwards and his cross ended up with another Telford goal.

Its was 3-3 and the tension could of been cut with a knife!!!!!

With the minutes ticking done like hours, the ball fell to Craig "Christiano" Nelthorpe and he danced into the box to place a ball that would have brought a tear to PELE's eye in to the back of the net.

A pure moment of class and skill be the boy called NELLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
