Andy Bishop completed his hat-trick in stoppage-time to earn Wrexham victory.

The striker put Wrexham ahead when he turned in David Artell's flick-on, but Dragons goalkeeper Joslain Mayebi let James Marwood's shot bounce over him to gift Gateshead an equaliser.

Adam Boyes's low shot gave Gateshead the lead within a minute, but James Curtis climbed on Artell to concede a penalty that Bishop converted.

Bishop then grabbed a dramatic winner with a header from Jay Harris' cross.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Wrexham player-manager Andy Morrell told BBC Radio Wales:

"I am going to have no hair left, and I haven't got much anyway. What a fabulous game!

"It was a fabulous game by two teams, I feel, try to play the right way. I don't think Gateshead deserved to lose, but I have been on that side of it.

"It's quite nice to be on the winning side for once. A week in football is crazy. Andy Bishop was fantastic for us, but it's not just his goals for us.

"For me, as a manager, it is his all-round play. He is holding the ball up, linking play and challenging defenders.

"Hopefully, he will go on a run now and then we have every chance of doing something."
