Blue Square Bet Premier

Gateshead top scorer Jon Shaw struck his 18th goal of the season as the promotion-chasing Tynesiders beat struggling Stockport at Edgeley Park.

Stockport's Aaron Cole had the first meaningful chance of the night, forcing a fine save from Tim Deasy, who tipped his 25-yard piledriver over the bar.

Gateshead's Nathan Fisher then missed with a close-range first-half header.

But the deadlock was eventually broken by prolific striker Shaw, who headed in Fisher's cross from close range.
