Gateshead’s push for promotion suffered a blow as they were beaten 4-2 away to Sutton United to leave them outside the National League Play-Off places.

Aynsley Pears maintained his place in goal for the Heed, who were 2-0 ahead courtesy of Greg Olley notching goals either side of half-time.

However Sutton responded four times without reply, with the defeat leaving Gateshead two points off the Play-Off spots, snapping the Heed's eight-game unbeaten run.
