Gateshead travel to Wealdstone for the first time since March 1987 on Saturday, January 28.

The Heed come into the weekend’s National League clash at Grosvenor Vale on the back of their first defeat in six games on Tuesday, with league leaders Wrexham emerging 3-0 winners.

Mike Williamson’s side have taken points from their last two away games in the league however, earning a point at Barnet and all three at York City on Boxing Day.

Wealdstone, meanwhile, have turned their home form around in recent weeks with three consecutive wins at Grosvenor Vale following a seven-game winless run.

Stuart Maynard’s side remain the division’s surprise package however, and have defied their part-time status so far to sit two points outside of the play-off places prior to kick off.

Olufela Olomola is The Stones’ leading scorer with six league goals so far, with three coming in his last six appearances.

Heed View

“They’ve slightly changed the style of play since we played them at our place,” said assistant manager, Ian Watson.

“They like to try and control the ball from the goalkeeper and play through, but we’ve done our homework on them and we’re looking forward to getting down there.”

Opposition View

“We’ll try to come out on the front foot against Gateshead, who are a very good team and deserved more from their game against Wrexham,” said Wealdstone manager, Stuart Maynard.

“They create chances and open you up and if you don’t stick to your game plan then they’ll give you a very difficult game.”

Team News

Owen Bailey is set to miss six to eight weeks after sustaining an ankle injury in Tuesday’s game against Wrexham.

James Montgomery remains absent due to illness.

Match Report: Jack McGraghan

Gateshead took a well-earned three points back to Tyneside with a 2-1 victory at Wealdstone.

Despite dominating the play in the first half, The Heed found themselves behind at the break after Max Kretzschmar put Wealdstone in front.

A second half barrage broke through The Stones defence however, with goals from Danny Elliott and Adam Campbell securing a huge win for Mike Williamson’s side.

Williamson named three changes following Tuesday’s defeat to Wrexham, with Elliot Forbes, Dan Ward & Lewis Knight coming into the starting 11 in place of Owen Bailey, Adam Campbell & Quevin Castro.

The Heed asserted themselves on proceedings from the first whistle and called Wealdstone goalkeeper Sam Howes into action within five minutes, with the stopper parrying Kamil Conteh’s initial strike before Greg Olley fired the rebound over.

Howes would be a busy man for the remainder of the game, and did well to keep Lewis Knight and Elliott out from inside the box, before Kretzschmar put a golden chance wide from close range at the other end.

Elliott thought he had broken the deadlock with 10 minutes until the break when he slotted past Howes inside the area, only for his strike to be disallowed for offside.

It would then be Kretzschmar who opened the scoring three minutes later when a set piece dropped to his feet in a crowded box, leaving an unguarded net for him to prod home.

The second half continued much like the first, with Gateshead in the ascendancy and creating a multitude of chances on goal.

Howes remained in inspired form though, and pulled off a point-blank save to stop Elliott from slotting home with just over an hour on the clock.

The equaliser finally arrived with 72 minutes on the clock, and it was Elliott who had the final touch, with Conteh tackled just as he was about to pull the trigger in the box only for the on-loan forward to convert.

Substitute Aaron Martin came agonisingly close to netting his first Gateshead goal as his side hunted for a winner, powering a header towards the top corner which Howes needed to pull off his finest save of the game to keep out.

Campbell made sure Gateshead’s second was only minutes away though, slotting low into the far corner after being teed up by Forbes inside the area to hand his side all three points.
