Record breaker Shaw!
The Heed have relied heavily on Jon Shaw's goals this season and the Yorkshireman's 35th goal of the campaign on Saturday set a new Gateshead goalscoring record.
Shaw has broken the 18-year record of 34 goals set by Paul Dobson in the 1993/94 season, the previous best season's return for a striker in the history of the club.
"It has been a phenomenal season for me," said Shaw "I've broken some personal records and to break the Gateshead goalscoring record for a season is great.
"It's been a superb two years at Gateshead scoring 56 goals in 95 games - and It will be even better if we can get into the play-offs.
"Having Hatch and Odubade back for the remaining games is a big bonus and hopefully we'll go into the final week - and two home games - still in contention."
Shaw, 28, hadn't struck a hat-trick in his career before joining Gateshead - but now has four to his name.
"It has been the sort of season you dream of. I scored 27 goals in a season for Halifax Town in the Conference but this campaign has been just incredible.
"I've really enjoyed my time at Gateshead and we've still got a good chance to make the play-offs, though we'll need a bit of luck as well.
"We've got a free week to prepare for this weekend's game at Bath City and if we can get the win we are looking for it will set up the two home games in the final week."
Gateshead host Luton Town in a six-pointer next Tuesday and then wrap up the season against AFC Telford United, both games at the International Stadium.
Manager Ian Bogie meanwhile has heaped praise on Shaw who he hopes to tie down to a new deal.
"What Shaw has achieved is fantastic," said Bogie "his record speaks for itself and he has had a fantastic season.
"His work rate and commitment have been tremendous and he will go into Gateshead folklore as one of the best strikers ever to play for the club.
"We have relied heavily on his goals but he will be the first to acknowledge the service he has received from crosses and general play.
"We will be sitting down with him at the end of the season and making him an offer in a bid to keep him at Gateshead."
