Gateshead 0-1 Aldershot Town

Aldershot moved to the top of the National League as Fabien Robert's late goal handed them victory over Gateshead.

Aldershot had the first real chance of the game as some good build-up play allowed James Rowe to fire a shot at Dan Hanford, with Danny Johnson trying his luck from distance at the other end.

Rowe had another chance midway through the first half but Hanford did well to save his free-kick and the scores were level at the break.

Gateshead had their best chance seven minutes after the break as first Luke Hannant and then Johnson saw shots saved by Jake Cole.

It looked like a game that would need a decisive moment and it came when Hanford's weak attempt to clear a corner fell to Robert and he hooked home with seven minutes to play.
