Match ends, Gateshead 3, Forest Green Rovers 1.
Gateshead 3-1 Forest Green Rovers
Forest Green's hopes of closing in on National League leaders Lincoln were dashed as they were beaten at Gateshead.
Wes York saw a speculative volley go just wide after six minutes, but he turned provider 15 minutes later as Danny Johnson put the hosts in front.
Jake Gosling hit a post as the visitors tried to get back into it, but Johnson was ruthless as he smashed in from the edge of the box on the half-hour mark to take his tally to 14 goals this season.
Kaiyne Woolery pulled one back for Forest Green after 49 minutes, but York restored Gateshead's two-goal advantage with a superb strike from distance seven minutes later.
