Gateshead 1-0 Braintree Town

JJ O'Donnell scored a last-gasp winner as Gateshead put distance between themselves and fellow Conference Premier promotion hopefuls Braintree.

The midfielder pounced on James Marwood's pass before firing home in the 90th minute to win the game.

The visitors were on top for much of the match but were caught with the sucker punch after failing to score.

Gateshead now sit third while Braintree are two points off the play-offs although they have two games in hand.
