Gateshead 1-0 Altrincham

Michael Rankine's goal helped Gateshead beat Altrincham and end a run of five matches without a win.

The striker latched on to Alex Rodman's pass and fired home from 20 yards for his fourth goal in eight games.

Josh Gillies almost added a second after the break but his free-kick was kept out by a fine save from Dave Parton.

James Lawrie had a late chance to equalise for Altrincham but his shot was well saved by Joel Dixon.
