Gateshead 0-0 FC Halifax Town
Halifax were forced to hang on for a point at Gateshead after Matty Kosylo was sent off midway through the second half.
The Yorkshire outfit were the better side in the first period, Kosylo hitting a piercing 30-yard strike that struck the upright before Adam Morgan hit the underside of the crossbar with an excellent free-kick.
At the other end, Sam Johnson had to be in top form to keep out Jordan Burrow's close-range header.
The Shaymen were reduced to 10 men when Kosylo saw red after an altercation with Callum Williams, but Billy Heath's side reacted in spirited fashion to claim a goalless draw.
