Gateshead travel to Altrincham for the first of three games inside six days on Monday, April 10 (3pm kick off).

The Heed’s mammoth schedule sees them face one of the longest away journeys of the season on Wednesday with a trip to Eastleigh, before facing Bromley on home soil on Saturday.

Mike Williamson’s side come into Easter Monday’s game fourth in the form table across the last 15 games, having won four league games in a row.

Altrincham sit 19th in the same time period, but have won three of their last four at home, with their sole defeat coming against league leaders Notts County.

Alty lie in 13th place in the league table coming into the week and are 13 points clear of the relegation zone, though they trail the play-off places by 11 points.

Former Altrincham striker Marcus Dinanga has already surpassed his five goals for Phil Parkinson’s side this season, having netted six in Gateshead colours in half the amount of games.

Heed View

“It’s a heavy week, I’ve never been involved in a week like it but we’ll relish that challenge,” said Mike Williamson.

“All we can focus on is recovery and making sure we get our prep right.”

Opposition View

“You’ve seen how many games we’ve come from behind, [it’s the] highest statistic in the division,” said Altrincham boss Phil Parkinson following their 2-2 draw at Oldham Athletic.

“They’ve got character and they’ll never let you down. Even if it’s not our day on the ball, they will go to the end.

“For such a young group, it’s a brilliant foundation going into next season.”

Match Report: Jack McGraghan

Gateshead made it six wins in a row in all competitions with a 1-0 victory at Altrincham on Easter Monday.

Marcus Dinanga netted his seventh Heed goal, against his former club no less, to send Mike Williamson’s side up to 16th place and six points clear of the relegation zone.

Adam Campbell and Connor Pani returned to the starting 11 at The J. Davidson Stadium, as Gateshead looked for a fifth consecutive National League win

It took only three minutes for the game’s first major chance to fall, and it came Kamil Conteh’s way, with the midfielder smashing a 15-yard drive towards goal which Oliver Byrne somehow parried wide.

Campbell was next to come close to notching for The Heed, firing a low effort just wide of the far post, though the slightest of touches would have sent it goalbound.

Altrincham were far from penned in however, and Tyrese Sinclair had a chance of his own only to be denied by Filip Marschall from close range, in the first of a number of fine saves from the Aston Villa loanee.

Just after the half-hour mark, Dinanga struck against his former club.

The forward contested for an aerial ball which dropped down to Stephen Wearne, who drove to the edge of the box and slid Dinanga through to fire across Byrne and into the far corner for his seventh Gateshead goal.

Pani came agonisingly close to making it two only moments later when his header struck the crossbar, before Joe Hugill cannoned a point-blank effort against Marschall’s crossbar at the other end after Sinclair had drawn another fine stop from the goalkeeper.

There was time for more chances at both ends before the half was out though, with Marschall this time acrobatically saving Josh Lundstram’s header, while Campbell forced Byrne into a fingertip save at the other end.

A breathless first half only let up ever so slightly in the second 45, and Regan Linney was left wondering how he hadn’t equalised five minutes into the restart when he headed a deep cross over the bar with the goal at his mercy.

Byrne was in fine form to keep the score at one on the counter moments later, as Campbell raced into the box only to be denied at the near post by the home stopper.

With 15 minutes to go, Linney found himself in shooting distance once again and this time found the target, only to be met by yet another fine Marschall stop to preserve his clean sheet.

Despite late pressure from Altrincham, Gateshead held out to record their fifth league win on the bounce, and move up to 16th in the process.
