Gateshead moved up to sixth in the table after sealing victory over Nuneaton in the Conference Premier.

James Brown gave the hosts the lead early in the second half with a close-range effort past Nuneaton goalkeeper Kelle Roos.

The visitors responded nine minutes later when Adam Walker tapped in a Wesley York cross to equalise.

Gateshead defender James Curtis headed in the winner 10 minutes from time following Colin Larkin's corner.

The Heed, who are level on points with fifth-placed Grimsby, have now extended their unbeaten league run to five matches.
