Gateshead take on Eastleigh in an effort to record a third consecutive Vanarama National League win on Tuesday, February 6 (7:45pm kick off).

The Heed backed up their 2-1 win over Barnet with an impressive 1-0 win away at Southend United last weekend, with Marcus Dinanga’s 18th of the season sending Rob Elliot’s men back into the play-off places.

Another win on home soil this evening could take Gateshead as high as fourth, though Elliot’s side do have games in hand on Solihull Moors and Aldershot Town in fifth and sixth.

Eastleigh, meanwhile, are hoping to put an end to an eight-game winless run on Tyneside after falling to defeat against league leaders Chesterfield, with leading goalscorer Paul McCallum also sent off at the weekend.

Richard Hill’s side will be looking to avenge the 6-0 defeat suffered by Gateshead’s hand earlier this season, and could move up to 11th with three points.

Heed View

“I think any 6-0 defeat is going to be fresh in your mind, particularly if it’s within the same season,” said Carl Magnay.

“We’re expecting them to be motivated, and with what we did down at their place we have to be on high alert and be aware that they’ll come here with the bit between their teeth in really wanting to avenge that.”

Match Report: Will Brown

A last-gasp Luke Hannant penalty salvaged a point for Gateshead despite a dominant performance against Eastleigh.

Enzo Boldewijn took a rare Eastleigh chance to bend an effort into the top corner from far out in the 54th minute.

Gateshead’s relentless pressure finally paid off – as they were awarded a penalty six minutes into added time – which Luke Hannant converted.

Rob Eliot made just the two changes to the team that participated in the 1-0 win away at Southend United on Saturday. Kieran Evans was given his first start for the Heed – while Harrison Bond replaced Eddie Beech between the sticks.

In the 21st minute, Kenton Richardson drove down the right flank and into the box before his eventual shot from a tight angle rattled the crossbar.

The Tynesiders found the bar for a second time in the 43rd minute. An in-swinged corner from Ed Francis found Mamadou Jobe at the back-post who flicked the ball off the crossbar.

Gateshead’s best chance of the first half came one minute into added time. A loose ball in the box was guided towards goal by Connor McBride – but George Langston was there to make a vital block on the line.

Gateshead had to pay for not taking their many chances as Eastleigh scored with their first chance of the match. With no options on, Boldewijn tried an audacious effort which managed to beat Bond from distance.

In the 74th minute, Ben Worman found Dajaune Brown at the near-post whose flicked effort was saved by Joe McDonnell.

A handball in Eastleigh’s box gave the Heed one final chance to not go home empty handed. Hannant stepped up to drill the ball past McDonnell.
