Sutton United 1-1 Gateshead

Gateshead withstood some late pressure to secure a draw at Sutton in a tale of two penalties at Gander Green Lane.

The visitors took a 15th-minute lead when Danny Johnson dusted himself down to score from the spot after he had been brought down by Louis John, who later headed against the crossbar.

The hosts were not to be denied and were awarded a spot-kick of their own when Theo Vassell fouled Craig Eastmond, with Simon Walton converting the 27th-minute spot-kick.

Sutton turned on the pressure in the closing stages, with Tommy Wright and Aswad Thomas both wasting great chances before Dan Hanford made a sensational save to keep out Eastmond's rasping shot.
