Gateshead 1-1 FC Halifax Town

Gateshead and Halifax remain outside the Conference Premier play-off places after they shared the spoils.

The away side struck first through a 25-yard Matty Pearson strike which nestled in the top right-hand corner.

But Jamie Chandler netted an equaliser for the home team just before the hour mark, his rising shot beating goalkeeper Matt Glennon.

Gateshead came closest to a winner, Glennon tipping wide Marcus Maddison's 25-yarder in the 90th-minute.
