Gateshead 0-3 Macclesfield Town

Macclesfield secured their first victory in nine league games as Reece Styche's hat-trick saw off play-off hopefuls Gateshead.

Styche opened the scoring after seven minutes when he rounded home keeper Sam Russell and tapped into an empty net.

He then doubled their lead from close range as the Gateshead defence failed to deal with a Danny Rowe corner.

Styche finished his excellent afternoon in the 87th minute with a powerful drive from the edge of the box.

Macclesfield remain 12th in the National League table, while Gateshead sit in ninth place, four points off the play-off positions.
