Manager Ian Bogie has said he is happy with Gateshead's progress this season despite his side letting in a late goal in their 1-1 draw with Lincoln City.

Gateshead sit seventh in the Blue Square Bet Premier.

Bogie told BBC Newcastle: "The positives are that we have taken nine points from the first five games. We're undefeated. We're on track.

"It was a jaded performance but the players have been fantastic over the past few weeks."

Bogie added that the Lincoln draw was a fair result: "It's probably what Lincoln deserved. They were a better side in the first half. We were really poor."

Midfielder James Marwood grabbed the lead for Gateshead just before half-time, only for striker Conner Robinson to score an 89th-minute goal and snatch a draw for the Imps.

Bogie added: "We gave possession away too cheaply and gave them too much freedom on the ball. We were surprised to be 1-0 up at half-time.

"Second half, we passed it better and created a lot more openings but never produced the killer touch in front of goal, which was vital to get the second goal. It came back to bite us with a late goal. It feels like a defeat."
