Gateshead 2 Whitby Town 1

Gateshead FC are now 14 games unbeaten, as the Ian Bogie football machine rolls on.

Whitby Town came with a game plan of closing Gateshead down and and slowing the game down.

Its worked in the middle part of the match but
Gateshead had many chances in front of goal, Graeme Armstrong hand 5 chances alone in the first half.

Gateshead Did take the lead Before the break through Jamie Harwood from a great Davie Southern cross.

After the break Steve Salvin slipped with the ball on the edge of the box and Whitby got level with shot from just inside the area.

Yet as on Saturday
Steve Salvin leaped like a salmon to bury such a sweet header past the Whitby keeper.

Heed Win 2-1
