Gateshead 0-1 North Ferriby United

Reece Thompson's second-half goal handed North Ferriby their first ever away win in the fifth tier as they beat struggling Gateshead.

Although it was goalless at the break, the Villagers responded to four defeats in-a-row by taking the game to the hosts.

Thompson shot just wide from Taron Hare's cross, and Danny Clarke forced Sam Johnson into a good save.

It was no surprise when Thompson gave North Ferriby the advantage in the 49th minute. The deadline-day signing marked his first goal for the Grange Lane club by rounding the goalkeeper and slotting in from a tight angle.

Gus Mafuta's late strike almost levelled the scores, but North Ferriby held on for the win.
