Gateshead will cross the border to North Wales to face Wrexham in the Vanarama National League this Tuesday (7:45pm kick off).

The Heed travel in search of the first win of the season at The Racecourse Ground this week, following a 1-0 defeat to Wealdstone last Saturday.

Mike Williamson’s side will be up against an in-form Wrexham team, with Wrexham now finding themselves fourth in the National League after beating Woking 3-2 away from home on Saturday.

Wrexham forward Paul Mullin is the division’s joint-third top scorer with four goals in five games having continued from where he left off last term, when he netted 26 times in league competition.

Adam Campbell remains Gateshead’s leading scorer ahead of Tuesday with three to his name, while Paul Blackett struck the woodwork twice on Saturday in an attempt to add to his two goals this season.

Heed View 

“As players you always want to come up against the best,” said midfielder Dan Ward.

“Obviously it’s a new league so we want to be playing the higher teams in the division.” 

“Tomorrow will be a different sort of test, a different sort of a team but still a very good team so we are all looking forward to it and can’t wait to get down there.” 

Opposition View

“Today, by hook or by crook, we had to get back on that coach with three points in the bag and I’m very pleased we have,” Wrexham boss Phil Parkinson told the club’s official YouTube channel following Saturday’s win over Woking.

“We look forward to Tuesday and we will go again then.”

Match Report: Jack McGraghan

Ten-man Gateshead were dealt a 3-1 defeat by Wrexham despite a battling performance at The Racecourse Ground.

Two deflected goals from Ben Tozer and Ollie Palmer put the hosts ahead in the opening 10 minutes, though Owen Bailey’s header gave The Heed hope before Louis Storey’s sending off.

Gateshead battled a man-down in the second 45 and created chances to take something from Wales, but Paul Mullin’s 79th minute strike ensured the points stayed in Wrexham.

Mike Williamson made two changes following Saturday’s defeat at the hands of Wealdstone, handing Will Harris his first start up front while bringing Storey back into the fold after he missed out through injury at the weekend.

The game got off to a dream start for Wrexham, who went ahead after two minutes when a corner pinged around in the penalty area before Tozer fired in at the near post via a sizeable deflection.

Gateshead looked to respond immediately and Tom Allan drew a low save from Mark Howard, though the hosts doubled their lead on 10 minutes as Palmer cut in from the left and sent a heavily deflected effort past Dan Langley.

The Heed hauled themselves back into contention with 26 minutes on the clock however when Bailey’s header from a Greg Olley corner proved too quick for Howard to handle, with the ‘keeper helping it into the back of the net.

The visitors’ resurgence was seemingly stifled by Storey’s dismissal three minutes later, with referee Daniel Middleton opting to show the defender a second yellow card after a slip and foul in Wrexham’s half.

On the contrary however, Gateshead’s reduction to 10 men only bolstered their confidence.

Dan Ward forced Howard into a smart save at his near post before Harris beat two men in the box and fired wide, with the half time whistle coming just as The Heed were hitting their stride.

After a quiet opening to the second 45 there were chances at both ends to add to the scoreline as Mullin fired over the bar for Wrexham, while at the other end Harris was denied a goal by Howard who got down well to keep out his low effort.

Mullin thought he had his side’s third when he converted a rebounded header off the post, only to be flagged offside, but 11 minutes from time Wrexham’s third arrived when the forward capitalised on Robbie Tinkler’s back pass to slot past Langley one-on-one.

Howard was called upon once again to keep Gateshead at one goal, next parrying substitute Paul Blackett’s effort which seemed destined for the far corner moments before Olley saw a shot from 12 yards deflected up and over the bar.

A monumental second half shift proved too little for Williamson’s side to gain any points at Wrexham, though once again showed encouraging signs that they are not far away.
