Gateshead have put assistant boss Lee Nogan in charge of Tuesday's game at AFC Fylde while discussions regarding manager Neil Aspin are ongoing.

Aspin, 52, who also had a spell as Halifax Town boss, has been in charge of his home-town club since November 2015, winning 37 of 93 games.

However, Aspin has been linked with the vacancy at Port Vale, a club where he is revered and played 410 games.

"A further statement will be made in due course," the club's statement said.
