Gateshead were denied a vital victory in their battle for survival after drawing 1-1 with Hereford.

The visitors went ahead against the run of play when Carl Magnay volleyed in after Hereford failed to clear Josh Gillies' corner.

But the Bulls equalised mid-way through the second half when Sam Clucas poked in from Ryan Bowman's excellent pass.

Both sides had chances to win it but the draw leaves Gateshead just two points clear of the drop zone.
