Paul Carden lost his first game as Southport manager as Gateshead boosted their play-off hopes.

Rob Ramshaw scored the only goal of the game after a clever one-two with Jamie Chandler in the area before slotting home, his seventh of the season.

Andy Parry's header was cleared off the line for Southport, with John Marsden and Paul Smith also going close.

Port remain just four points above the relegation places, while Gateshead are now three points off the play-offs.
