Fylde 1-0 Gateshead: Late Danny Rowe goal seals win for hosts
Danny Rowe's 11th goal of the season for Fylde, deep into stoppage time, ensured a 1-0 win at home to fellow National League promotion-chasers Gateshead.
Heed keeper Aynsley Pears had to claw a shot off his line early in the match, clutching at the second attempt after Andy Bond had aimed at goal.
Steve Watson's visitors themselves came close towards the end of the first half when Luke Armstrong's driven cross was turned on to the bar by strike partner Steven Rigg.
In the second half, Fylde's Jay Lynch made a fine stop to deny Jack Hunter close in, as the match threatened to end in stalemate.
But Zaine Francis-Angol's low centre was turned in clinically by Rowe to clinch victory for Fylde in the fourth minute of added time.
