Barnet 1-2 Gateshead

Luke Armstrong hit the winner as Gateshead got their National League campaign back on track with victory at Barnet.

Gateshead, looking for their first win in five matches, took the lead when Scott Boden netted from close range.

The visitors came within inches of doubling their advantage when Luke Molyneux fired against the crossbar and, to add salt to the wounds, Barnet levelled within minutes of the let-off.

Jack Taylor left Heed goalkeeper Aynsley Pears with no chance as he thumped home the equaliser.

But top scorer Armstrong drilled home his seventh goal of the campaign to give the visitors the points with time running out.

Barnet, who dumped League One Bristol Rovers out of the FA Cup in midweek, came close to a second equaliser, but Manny Duku's header hit the bar.
