Gateshead required two quickfire goals in the second half to ensure victory over Chester in the Conference Premier.

Carl Magnay's stunning 40-yarder in the first minute put the hosts ahead, but Danny Harrison levelled by turning in Nathan Turner's cross.

Jordan Hugill and Colin Larkin struck within two minutes of each other to pull the Heed clear.

Danny Higginbotham pulled one back for Chester but Kevin McIntyre's late dismissal ended their revival.
