North Ferriby 1 Gateshead 4

Strong resolve was the order of the day as Gateshead overcame being 1-0 down at half time to win 4-1.

The first half was a horrible affair to watch with the referee taking centre stage and shining like a 2 watt bulb.
Late tackles and tackles from behind were missed by the ref and his assistants, which made life difficult for Gatesheads passing game.

The second half seen Gateshaed recompose and take the game to North Ferriby with such vigor even Manchester United would have thrown the towel in.

Goals by Davie Southern, Chris Hughes, Steve Salvin and Substitute Ian Robson (pictured) sore Gateshead
make it 18 games unbeaten, also made it 24 goals in 6 games this season.

Three Stand out players on the night were Graeme Armstrong, Wayne Phillips and Jamie McClen, all three were in fine form and ran the show for the heed.
Armtrong deserved a goal after spinning the Ferriby defence was only denied by the fine save made by the keeper.
