Gateshead 3 Prescot Cables 0

Prescot Cables started the match with some slick passing and the drive of a team coming to out to get a result. This only lasted a mater of minutes as Gateshead got into stride and picked apart the Prescot midfield and defence.

Davie Southern notched his 17th goal of the season as he latched on to rebound, spun and slotted it home past the Prescot keeper.

Six minutes later captain Steve Bowey doubled the Tynesiders lead to send the home crowd wild, it was a classic Bowser goal. Gateshead once again took a few minutes to get started in the second half as relegation threatened Prescot tried to push forward for something out of the game, but that would happen.

Kris Gate made it 3-0 with a fine finish, it was Gate’s 5th goal of the season. The Prescot keeper was lucky not red after handling the ball outside the box. The resulting free kick was taking by Paul Brayson , sadly it was high, wide and not at all handsome.
