Gateshead 2-3 Harrogate Town

Harrogate went top of the National League with a 3-2 win at Gateshead.

Harrogate went ahead midway through the first half when Tom White fouled George Thomson in the penalty area and Dominic Knowles converted from the spot.

Gateshead drew level as Fraser Kerr rose highest at the back post to head home Greg Olley's corner.

Steven Rigg then gave the hosts a 52nd-minute lead, heading in Scott Boden's cross after a neat move.

But four minutes later Harrogate drew level as Jack Muldoon found space in the box and fired home a low effort.

Aaron Williams struck the winner five minutes from time after reacting quickest when Warren Burrell's shot deflected into the box.
