Welling United 2-0 Gateshead

Gateshead missed the chance to climb into the Conference Premier top five as they fell to defeat at Park View Road.

Welling midfielder Joe Healy made it five goals in six outings with a left-footed volley after just seven minutes.

Alfie Mawson headed home Harry Beautyman's corner after an hour for his first goal for Welling.

The home side then held firm to leave the visitors with just one win from their last seven games and their play-off hopes faltering.
