Gateshead 0-2 Sutton United

Substitute Tommy Wright grabbed a double as high-flying Sutton beat Gateshead.

There were chances for both sides in an open first half but nobody could break the deadlock before the interval.

Gateshead started the second half strongly and almost went ahead when Scott Barrow let fly from the edge of the area less than a minute after the break, but his fierce strike hit the side netting.

The visitors took the lead after 74 minutes when Wright got on the end of Louis John's cross and headed in.

And Sutton doubled their advantage in the 81st minute when Wright's low strike found the bottom corner.
