Gateshead 1-1 Southport

Gary Mills
Gary Mills' Gateshead have won just one of their last six league games

Gateshead and Southport followed up their victories in the second round of the FA Cup with a 1-1 stalemate.

The Heed, who will travel to West Brom in the third round, and Southport, who will go to Derby, played out a first half short on chances.

But Richard Brodie headed in Paul Rutherford's cross to give the visitors the lead after the break.

And the hosts levelled with 15 minutes to go when Danny Wright found Alex Rodman, who stroked in.

Wright headed over a good opportunity late on, but the point keeps the Sandgrounders just above the Conference relegation zone, while Gateshead are two points shy of the play-off places.
