Gateshead suffer home defeat to Grimsby
GATESHEAD are still searching for their first point of the season after Chris Doig’s second-half header condemned them to a 2-1 home defeat to Grimsby Town.
After an itinerant existence in the second half of last season, the Heed are finally back in their International Stadium home with their long-standing drainage problems now solved.
They made an ideal start to their first ‘home’ game since January, with Phil Turnbull slotting home an opener in the 20th minute.
However, Liam Hearn headed home a Grimsby equaliser midway through the first half, and Doig converted Patrick McLaughlin’s corner with 18 minutes left to condemn Gateshead to their second Conference defeat in the space of four days.
Gateshead: Bartlett; Magney, O’Brien, Clark, Tait; Chandler (Maddison 76), Turnbull, Walker; Brodie, Boyes (Larkin 65), Brown.
