Gateshead secured their Blue Square Bet Premier status as they beat Ebbsfleet at Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium.

Other results meant the Heed would have been safe anyway but goals from Liam Hatch and Liam Henderson made sure survival was in their own hands.

Hatch headed in a Josh Gillies corner and Henderson sealed the win in stoppage-time when he turned in James Marwood's cross.

Adam Bartlett denied Ebbsfleet saving from Moses Ashikodi and Nathan Elder.
