Ilkeston Town 2-0 Gateshead

Gateshead crashed to their first away defeat of the campaign following a disappointing 2-0 defeat at Ilkeston.

Ian Bogie was once again thwarted by former team mate Nigel Jemson who ensured his side completed the double over the Tynesiders who drop to third in the table as a result.

For much of the first half both teams were fairly evenly matched, however a goal on the stroke of half time from former Sheffield Wednesday striker Adam Muller saw the Derbyshire outfit take a slemder lead in to the break.

Despite chances to get back in the the game during the seconf half, an 82nd minute goal from Gardner put the game beyond the visitors to see the Tynesiders suffer back to back defeats in the Unibond Premier Division ahead of next Saturday's visit of Boston United in the FA Trophy.
