Altrincham 2-3 Gateshead

Altrincham's winless National League run stretched to seven matches as Danny Johnson scored twice to seal victory for Gateshead.

Johnson put the Heed ahead with a close-range finish but the hosts levelled when Marcus Holness converted Josh Ginnelly's rebounded free-kick.

Soon after, Johnson tapped a second in before CJ Hamilton made it 3-1.

Jake Moult scored from the spot for the hosts after Damian Reeves was brought down by Ben Clark in added time.

Altrincham remain in 21st place in the National League with their last win coming against Woking in January, while Gateshead move up to seventh, three points outside the play-off places.
