Heed Hit Seven As Race For The Play-Offs Really Heats Up

By Sam Elliott

After the title was decided on Saturday, tonight was all about the play-off hunt - and who wants to go up with Chesterfield.

Gateshead put their hand up and in some style battered Hartlepool United 7-1.

Instead of looking to secure a top seven place, they now appear fixed on home Eliminator advantage after a stunning show at the International Stadium. Dajaune Brown scored twice with goals from Luke Hannant, Kieron Evans, Regan Booty, Callum Whelan and an own goal easing them to victory.

Altrincham also fancy their chances after coming from behind too, they flattened Wealdstone 4-1.

Alex Newby, George Wilson, Lewis Banks and Regan Linney were on target for the Robins, who climb to sixth.

It was a really bad night for Solihull Moors after Southend made light work of them in the Midlands. Oliver Coker scored twice with Harry Cardwell also on the mark.

Tamworth can win the National League North as soon as Friday as Scunthorpe United went down 1-0 at Spennymoor.

Corey McKeown got the only goal to all but end the Iron’s hopes of catching the table toppers. South Shields moved into the top seven - they breezed past Banbury 3-0. Paul Blackett scored once again.

Warrington won 3-1 at Peterborough Sports while Southport are surely safe after Marcus Carver added to his tally in the 4-1 win over Bishop’s Stortford.

Farnborough move level on points with the National League South play-offs after a thumping 3-0 win at Weston-super-Mare. Jordan Williams scored twice.

The big game at the bottom ended 0-0 as Dartford were forced to settle for a draw at Truro City.
