Wrexham are in the FA Trophy quarter-finals after a dramatic penalty shoot-out win at Gateshead.

Louis Moult sealed the visitors' win with a fifth successful spot kick to earn Wrexham a tie at Halifax on Tuesday, 10 February.

Like Wrexham, Halifax's third-round game against Dartford had been postponed by poor weather, but they won 3-1.

Wrexham and Gateshead were tied 2-2 at the end of normal and extra time.

Valentin Gjokaj scored the hosts' early opener and after Connor Jennings and Wes York struck for the visitors, Michael Rankine levelled late on.

Neither side could break the deadlock in extra time and Moult was Wrexham's hero from the spot.

Wrexham boss Kevin Wilkin said: "It's a massive win. Gateshead are a strong side and we gave ourselves an uphill task in conceding so early.

"We did well enough to stay in the game, scored two terrific goals, but disappointing to concede so late on and we had to go to extra time and penalties.

"But I was just delighted to come through."
