Gateshead 0-0 Aldershot Town

Colin Larkin

Gateshead striker Colin Larkin missed an injury-time penalty but his side still moved into the play-off spots after a goalless draw with Aldershot.

The home side dominated but struggled to create chances in a poor first half.

Gateshead went close to breaking the deadlock with five minutes left but Larkin's effort hit the bar.

And there was more frustration for Larkin when keeper Glenn Morris palmed his spot-kick over the bar after Marcus Maddison had been fouled in the box.
