Squeaky Bum Time!!!! (Play-Off Preview)

Every Gateshead fan young and old will be experiencing a tight stomach and the tingle that on the Play-Offs can bring.

Eastwood Town stand in the way of the Tynesiders on route to possible glory at the Play-Off final.

The Badgers were the first opposition of the season down at Coronation Park, Gateshead came out on top with a 3-1 win. Wayne Phillips, Steve Salvin and Graeme Armstrong all found the net that day to send the coach load of Gateshead fans home happy.
In March the two sides drew 1-1 with Jamie Harwood notching Gateshead’s goal at the International Stadium in front of 301 people.
It easy to say this is the most important game of the season, and the clubs preparation in the build up to the Play-Offs has been fantastic.

Ian Bogie and Jeff Wrightson have been meticulous in there squad selection over the past few weeks making sure that the whole squad got a rest here and there.
Not only have the squad had rests, but they have been finding form all over the park.

Both Davie Southern and Graeme Armstrong have both reached 20 goals each, while Captain Steve Bowey had hit 3 goals in his last 4 games to take his tally to 8 goals. Defender Phil Cave also has banged in the goals this year, scoring 11 this term.
The mighty Paul Musselwhite has been in outstanding form keeping 8 clean sheets in the last 10 matches, the giant man from originally Portsmouth has been a rock you can depend on of late, lets hope he has a quiet Play off game.
All that is left to say, is Come down on Tuesday night and get behind the boys and sing your heart out for the lads!!!!!!!

HEED ARMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
