Gateshead kept up their Blue Square Bet Premier play-off bid with a comfortable victory over Barrow.

Kris Gate swept home Alan O'Brien's cross to give the home side the lead before the break.

Andy Cook then saw red for the visitors after committing two bookable offences, before home keeper Danny Hurst did well to keep out Paul Dummett's header.

Micky Cummins secured the points for the Heed when he headed home another O'Brien cross.
