Gateshead 1-4 Tranmere Rovers

Liam Ridehalgh
Liam Ridehalgh broke the deadlock for Tranmere Rovers against Gateshead

Tranmere Rovers sealed their second win of their National League campaign after a comfortable victory at Gateshead.

Liam Ridehalgh put Rovers in front from close range before Ritchie Sutton's header doubled their lead soon after.

Michael Ihiekwe volleyed a third before Jon Shaw clawed one back for the Heed after firing home Craig Baxter's cross.

Any hopes of a Gateshead comeback were quelled when Matthew Hill drilled a second half finish to seal victory for the side relegated from League Two.
