Gateshead eased past local rivals Blyth Spartans to book their place in the FA Cup second round.

Calamitous defending from the Blue Square Bet North club allowed Jon Shaw to break into the box and slot home for his 17th goal of the season.

The visitors struck again when Shaw laid off a Chris Carruthers cross and Micky Cummins's shot flew beyond the dive of keeper David Knight.

Blyth's best chance fell to Jamie Mole, whose right-footed effort hit the bar.
