Gateshead 0-0 Havant & Waterlooville
Play-off chasing Gateshead were left frustrated after being held to a goalless draw at home by struggling Havant.
The Hawks had a chance to go ahead after four minutes, but when Wes Fogden flicked the ball on from a low Rory Williams cross, nobody was on hand to turn it in.
Gateshead's Greg Olley should have done better after 20 minutes, but shot straight at the Havant keeper from inside the area before Robbie Tinkler forced Ben Dudzinski into a fine save on the half-hour.
Fogden went close just before half-time, but Gateshead keeper Aynsley Pears kept him at bay with an important block.
And with 12 minutes to go, Steven Rigg just failed to get a touch at the back post as Gateshead, who lie a point outside the play-off places, had to settle for a point against a Havant side who are one point above the relegation zone.
