Aldershot Town 0-2 Gateshead
Aldershot's relegation fears deepened as they slipped seven points off safety after a home defeat by Gateshead.
Gary Waddock's hosts looked bright early on and Bernard Mensah forced Gateshead keeper Aynsley Pears to tip wide to keep the scores level.
Pears was also well-placed to push aside a close-range volley from John Goddard as the Shots kept up the pressure.
In the second half, though, Gateshead found their rhythm and an accurate centre from Scott Barrow was headed past Jake Cole by Connor Thomson - his first goal for the Heed.
Ben Clark's men extended their unbeaten run to seven games as Tom Devitt found substitute Cameron Salkeld at the back post to seal the points.
