Gateshead play the final league game of the season at The International Stadium on Saturday, April 29 against Maidenhead United (5:30pm kick-off).

Mike Williamson’s side can finish anywhere between 14th and 17th on the final day, showing the improvement of the squad as they sat 22nd going into the New Year.

The Heed have turned The International Stadium into a fortress in the second half of the season, losing just two of their last 10 home games.

And they recorded a 2-0 victory away to Boreham Wood in midweek through an Adam Campbell double, who also scored last Saturday at Woking.

Maidenhead are all but safe from relegation, sitting three points above Torquay United with a seven greater goal difference.

That would be the sixth consecutive season former England midfielder Alan Devonshire has kept The Magpies afloat in non-league’s top flight.

Maidenhead are winless in their last six games, though they rescued a point last weekend against promotion hopefuls Barnet following a late Charlee Adams strike.

The Magpies claimed a 1-0 victory the last time they visited Tyneside in January 2019, however the season before that Gateshead secured a 7-1 win.

Heed View

“For us our focus is just on improving,” stated Gateshead boss Mike Williamson.

“The lads work their socks off on the training field and that was evident on the pitch on Tuesday [at Boreham Wood].

“People talk about momentum and confidence but I think that’s just a by-product of us really tuning into our jobs.

“With all the discipline and detail we got right on Tuesday, we’ve got to make sure the consistency keeps building and the momentum and confidence will carry that.”

Opposition View

“We’ll prepare the same way we always do,” said Maidenhead assistant manager Ryan Peters following the 1-1 draw with Barnet.

“Believe it or not, we had seven or eight injuries leading up to last week’s game so we’ll need to take a look at people.

“We’ll train like we always do and go up to Gateshead looking to win the game.”

Team News

Elliot Forbes, Lewis Knight and Mike Williamson are unavailable through injury and illness.

Kenton Richardson returned to light training during the week but is unlikely to feature.

Gateshead saw out the National League season with a well-deserved 4-0 win against Maidenhead at the Gateshead International Stadium.

Ethan Pye got his first league goal for Gateshead after he headed home Greg Olley’s cross in the 30th minute.

Zico Asare was on the unfortunate to score an own-goal after he tried to clear Aaron Martin’s shot in the 38th minute.

Adam Campbell was the third name added to the scoresheet when he tucked away his golden chance in the 40th minute.

The final goal came from Dan Ward who drilled his effort into the far-corner in the 88th minute.

Mike Williamson would make five changes to the team that was seen on Tuesday against Boreham Wood.

The first chance of the match fell to Emile Acquah in the 12th minute. The Maidenhead striker powered down the wing and into the box but fired his shot over the bar from a tight angle.

The Magpies came close again in the 25th minute. Reece Smith played a well-disguised out wide to Shawn McCoulsky who fizzed a first-time shot which Marschall palmed away.

Gateshead took the lead in the 30th minute. Greg Olley whipped a corner towards the near-post which Pye flicked on to the far-post past Joe Walsh.

Asare put the ball into his own net in 38th minute to give The Tynesiders their second of the match.  Aaron martin drilled a low-drilled shot towards the far corner which Asare stuck a boot onto.

Gateshead got their third of the game via Campbell in the 40th minute. A long-ball over the top was flicked on by Martin to Campbell which caught Alan Massey out. Campbell was presented with a one-on-one chance which he tucked away confidently.

It was Owen Bailey came close to being added to the scoresheet in the 42nd minute. Olley’s floated cross found Bailey at the back-post who attempted an audacious overhead kick which was cleared off the line by Asare.

Ward slipped Campbell in behind the Maidenhead defence, but his eventual shot was curled past the post in the 55th minute.

Ward put the final nail in the coffin in the 88th minute. Stephen Wearne looked up to find Ward make a late run into the box which they got onto the end of to convert with a low-driven shot.
