Gateshead 2-0 Lincoln City

Gateshead secured a hard-fought victory over Lincoln City to move up to fourth in the National League table.

James Curtis headed Jordan Cranston's accurate free-kick home to put the hosts ahead in the first half.

Jimmy Phillips then forced Lincoln goalkeeper Paul Farman into a smart save, before Josh Gillies drilled a shot just wide of the post.

But captain Ben Clark made the points safe with 10 minutes left, guiding Matt Pattison's corner into the net.
