Altrincham 0-1 Gateshead

Midfielder Jamie Chandler scored the game's only goal as Gateshead narrowly defeated Altrincham.

Chandler struck just before half-time, heading in Marcus Maddison's cross via the underside of the bar.

The home side fought for an equaliser and Peter Cavanagh put a free-kick narrowly over.

Gateshead goalkeeper Alex Baird had to be on form to keep out Sean Williams' shot and a Damian Reeves header as the Heed held out for the three points.
