Match ends, Wrexham 4, Gateshead 0.
Dominic Vose scored twice as Wrexham secured a third straight win in the National League with victory against 10-man Gateshead.
Gateshead were left a man down when Patrick McLaughlin was shown his second yellow card for a foul on Jon Nolan.
Robbie Evans' header put Wrexham ahead before Blaine Hudson doubled the lead with a final touch from close-range.
Vose's two goals sealed the win, the first a fine individual effort as Wrexham moved up to eighth.
Wrexham's best win of the season took them to within two points off the play-off places.
Wrexham manager Gary Mills told BBC Radio Wales:
"I've been feeling a bit under the weather the last few days so that's cheered me up a bit.
"It's nice to get another four goals and nice to get the clean sheet. It's a big three points for us.
"Most teams up there have won again so it's important we stay with them and show that we're capable of staying with them."
