Braintree Town 0-0 Gateshead

Play-off hopefuls Braintree and Gateshead played out a goalless draw in the National League.

Simeon Akinola's effort was denied by Gateshead keeper Sam Russell, before Ryan Bowman came close to opening the scoring at the other end.

Head defender Craig Baxter managed to clear a goalbound in-swinging corner by Taylor Miles to keep the scores level.

The home side then nearly nicked all three points late on but Michael Cheek failed to convert Akinola's flick on.
