Gateshead 2-1 Nuneaton Town

Gateshead moved up to sixth in the table after sealing victory over Nuneaton in the Conference Premier.

James Brown gave the hosts the lead early in the second half with a close-range effort past Nuneaton goalkeeper Kelle Roos.

The visitors responded nine minutes later when Adam Walker tapped in a Wesley York cross to equalise.

Gateshead defender James Curtis headed in the winner 10 minutes from time following Colin Larkin's corner.

The Heed, who are level on points with fifth-placed Grimsby, have now extended their unbeaten league run to five matches.
