Gateshead open the Easter weekend with their second home fixture of the week as Rochdale travel to Gateshead International Stadium on Friday, March 29 (3pm kick off).

The Heed come into the game sitting fourth in the Vanarama National League on the back of Tuesday’s 7-1 win over Hartlepool United, which saw Rob Elliot’s side move above Solihull Moors on goal difference.

Gateshead host The Dale this afternoon with the chance to strengthen their grip on fourth position, with themselves and Solihull on 66 points ahead of kick off while Altrincham and Aldershot Town come into the weekend on 64 points each.

Rochdale come into the fixture nine points behind the play-off places in 11th position on the back of a three-game winning run which has seen them defeat Woking, Eastleigh and Maidenhead United.

Gateshead have already faced Rochdale twice on the road this season, drawing 2-2 in Elliot’s first game in interim charge in the National League before earning a 5-1 win in the Isuzu FA Trophy third round.

The visitors have three players who have struck double figures in the league this season in Kairo Mitchell (14), Ian Henderson (11), and Tyrese Sinclair (10).

Heed View

Opposition View

“We’ve got key games coming up, against teams above us, in Gateshead and Oldham Athletic especially.” said Rochdale midfielder, Ryan East.

“Both are away, so if we can go there and the result we need, you never know.

“But we’ll take it one game at a time. We’re probably in a good position where teams won’t expect us to be there, but there’s no pressure on us. We can go about our business and if we win the games, you never know at the end of the season.”

Will Brown
Match Report: Will Brown

Dajaune Brown’s goal gave Gateshead their third consecutive win with a 1-0 victory over Rochdale at Gateshead International Stadium.

Dajaune Brown scored with a nonchalant dinked finish in the 25th minute – which was reminiscent of the goal he scored against Hartlepool United on Tuesday.

Rob Elliot named an unchanged starting 11 to the team that mauled Hartlepool 7-1 in a historic victory on Tuesday night.

The first chance of the match fell to Gateshead in the 12th minute. A threaded ball through to Kieron Evans allowed the Welshman to attempt a shot across goal but Jacob Chapman managed to get down to make a solid save.

A well-work short corner routine from Rochdale allowed Devante Rodney to progress into the box before he poked an effort towards goal which Nathan Harness had to get down

Ed Francis played a superb looped ball over the top of the Rochdale defensive line to allow Brown to get on the end of the ball to chip the ball over Chapman.

Francis fired a free-kick on target from 30 yards in the 32nd minute – but Chapman made a relatively easy catch to keep the effort out.

In the 49th minute, Luke Hanannt played a 40-yard first-time long ball through to Brown who was one-on-one with the Rochdale goalkeeper – but the linesman ruled the striker to be offside.

Chapman made a miraculous save to tip Louis Storey’s bullet header onto the bar in the 58th minute – Regan Booty tried to follow up on the rebound but a Rochdale defender was there to crucially clear.

In the 82nd minute, Kyron Gordan found an unmarked Tyrese Sinclair at the back post but his eventual effort was denied by Nathan Harness with a solid stop.
