Gateshead host their second of three home fixtures inside a week on Tuesday, March 7 as FC Halifax Town visit Gateshead International Stadium.

The Heed’s defeat against Chesterfield last weekend leaves them one point inside the bottom four, though they could move up two places should they win and results elsewhere go in their favour.

Mike Williamson’s side have played the fewest home games (15) of any team in the National League so far, and face a Halifax side who have lost just one of their last four on the road.

Chris Millington’s men followed up a blistering 5-0 win over Wealdstone on home soil with a goalless draw at Dorking last weekend, seeing them 16th in the league table as things stand.

Mani Dieseruvwe is one goal away from reaching double figures in the league, but on the whole Halifax have struggled in front of goal, with only Yeovil Town (28) scoring less than their 34 goals in 35 games.

Since The Shaymen’s re-formation in 2008, the two sides have faced each other 13 times and played out 10 draws in normal time.

Heed View

“We gave too much respect and time on the ball [on Saturday],” said player-manager, Mike Williamson.

“We’ve reflected, we’ve had to be honest with each other and ourselves in where we can be better, and we’ll get a reaction.”

Opposition View

“We’re coming away from performances having felt like we deserved a win, and we’ve got to turn that feeling into getting a win,” Chris Millington told the Halifax Courier.

“The lads are working really hard to implement the game-plan at the moment and if they continue to work like that then we’ll give ourselves a very good chance of winning the game.”

Elliot Forbes, Lewis Knight, Owen Bailey and Quevin Castro remain absent through injury.

Heroics from Filip Marschall and Ethan Pye helped Gateshead earn a hard-battled point against Halifax.

Mike Williamson made one change to the staring 11 that played against Chesterfield. With Adam Campbell being reintroduced to the starting XI, while Louis Storey dropped to the bench. 

In the 13th minute Marcus Dinanga found Dan Ward who took on three Halifax defenders before his shot vitally blocked by one of the visitors’ defenders. 

Tylor Gordan’s wide free-kick was floated to the back-post for Millenic Alli to guide the ball just past the post from a header in open space in the 28th minute. 

Adam Senior’s bullet header from five-yards out was miraculously saved by Filip Marschall in the 34th minute. 

In the 44th minute Ed Francis whipped a low cross from a free-kick outside in the direction of the near-post which Dinanga managed to get a boot onto and direct the ball at Sam Johnson despite the tight angle. 

Heed fans hearts were in their mouths as it looked certain Halifax had taken the lead if it wasn’t for Ethan Pye who cleared Adam Senior’s header off the line in the 50th minute. 

Fresh off the bench Emmanuel Dieseruvwe came close to giving the visitors the lead. Jamie Cook played a low-driven cross towards the near post which Dieseruvwe flicked wide in the 64th minute. 

After a tussle for possession, Callum Whelan tried his luck from 24-yards out in the 86th minute when his shot was fired wide. 

Just three minutes later, Whelan tried his luck again from outside the box but this time with a low and hard shot that went wide by just a yard.
