Aldershot Town 1-2 Gateshead

Rob Ramshaw's late finish gave high-flying Gateshead a 2-1 win over Aldershot.

The midfielder had given the visitors the lead early in the second half when he latched on to a long ball.

Dan Holman snatched an equaliser on his league debut for Aldershot when he stabbed home after a scramble from Sam Hatton's long throw.

But Ramshaw was left unmarked to steal the points at the death for Gateshead, who go second.

Aldershot Town boss Andy Scott told BBC Surrey:

Andy Scott: Aldershot boss after defeat to Gateshead

"We didn't deserve that, you know they are a good side but after going a goal behind we looked a real threat and we created some good chances and we put them under pressure.

"We went toe-to-toe with them and there are partnerships building up all over the pitch and I thought Dan Holman and Brett Williams were a threat again.

"We have lost a few to injury and we've had to deal with that, but overall I'm pleased with the performance and we have to maintain the levels we've been showing.

"We've got to lift them because all we can ask is a performance of that quality, and sometimes you get the break, but we played a side who lost the play-off final last season and we went toe-to-toe with them."
