Macclesfield Town 1-0 Gateshead

Kristian Dennis scored the only goal of the game as Macclesfield beat Gateshead to record a third straight victory.

Ryan Bowman headed over for the visitors while Gateshead keeper Sam Russell saved from Danny Rowe.

Dennis, who had missed the last three games, scored his 10th goal of the season after latching onto Rowe's through-ball and slotting past Russell.

Gateshead were denied an equaliser when Ben Clark slid in to score but the effort was ruled out for offside.
