Leyton Orient 2-0 Gateshead
National League leaders Leyton Orient stayed ahead of Salford thanks to victory over seventh-placed Gateshead.
Josh Koroma curled a 30-yard effort against the bar just before half-time before netting the opener in the 59th minute with a real moment of quality. The winger picked up the ball on the edge of the box and cut inside before finding the top corner.
Gateshead almost equalised when Tom White's volley flew narrowly wide, while at the other end Macauley Bonne was denied by a fine save by Aynsley Pears.
But Pears was powerless to stop Bonne netting his 17th of the season in injury time following a poor back pass, and Gateshead's misery was complete when Greg Olley was shown a second yellow card.
