Gateshead travel to Altrincham in the Emirates FA Cup fourth round qualifying this Saturday (3pm kick off).

The Heed are coming into this season’s FA Cup campaign looking to build from one defeat in their previous five matches, with Mike Williamson’s side holding high-flying Bromley to a 1-1 draw at Hayes Lane last time out.

The hosts took the lead in the 72nd minute through a Louis Dennis strike, eight minutes before Dan Ward equalised with his second goal in as many away fixtures.

Altrincham have began to turn their season around following a slow start, winning three of their last four Vanarama National League outings.

Phil Parkinson’s side recorded a 4-1 win over Dorking Wanderers on home soil last Saturday, lifting his side 16th in the league table.

Heed View  

“We know how tough this is going to be, but we have a game plan and it’s about going there and executing that.” said player-manager, Mike Williamson.

“Every player wants to test themselves against the best players and this is an opportunity for them to do that.”  

“The FA Cup brings an element of excitement, and we know how big it is and how much it means to the club.” 

Last Time We Met 

The two sides met as recently as October 4, 2022, when Gateshead were the hosts but fell to a 3-1 defeat despite taking the lead through an early Owen Bailey strike.

Match Report: Jack McGraghan

A 2-2 draw in Greater Manchester ensured Gateshead will meet Altrincham for the third time in two weeks in an Emirates FA Cup fourth round qualifying replay.

Chris Conn-Clarke handed the hosts an early advantage in the initial tie, before Robbie Tinkler and Greg Olley struck to put The Heed in front at half time.

Marcus Dinanga then levelled in the second 45 to ensure the two sides will face each other again at Gateshead International Stadium on Tuesday, October 18 (7:45pm).

Mike Williamson handed Dan Jarvis his first start at The J. Davidson Stadium, with Paul Blackett absent and dropping out of the squad.

The first half proved to be a reverse of this season’s Vanarama National League clash at Gateshead International Stadium, with Altrincham this time taking the lead eight minutes in through Conn-Clarke.

Gateshead went on to dominate the rest of the opening 45 however, and Tinkler’s first of the season – a 25-yard screamer after Olley’s cross was headed clear – pulled his side level seven minutes later.

Williamson’s side continued to create chances via the right flank after drawing level, with Dan Ward and Adam Campbell both seeing opportunities thwarted by goalkeeper Oliver Byrne.

Dan Langley was called upon to save a one-on-one at the other end before the break, denying Dinanga a first half strike after a slip had allowed him clean through.

Olley finally capitalised on Gateshead’s chances five minutes from half time, slotting home Campbell’s lay off from Tinkler’s knock down to hand his side the advantage.

Luke Daley could have made it three seconds before the half time whistle when he was picked out by Ward at the back post, but an unfortunate bounce led to the full-back blazing over the bar first time.

Altrincham emerged for the second half with renewed intent, though Gateshead had chances to extend their lead early on.

Campbell intercepted a ball in the Altrincham half and played a one-two with Olley to open up space for himself, but Byrne was there to deny his finish.

Carl Magnay struck the side netting from a corner two minutes later, but the hosts began to grow into proceedings from that point onwards.

Dinanga smashed the equaliser high into the net from the edge of the box with 18 minutes to go, and set up a tense finish with both sides wary of committing too many men forward.

Langley was on high alert to make a reaction save from a 20-yard strike late on, but chances proved a rarity and the final whistle blew with the two sides even.
