GATESHEAD ended leaders Witton Albion's 100% home record - but had to settle for a point in a pulsating top-three clash at Wincham Park.
Goals for strike pair Graeme Armstrong and David Southern gave the Tynesiders a 2-1 half-time lead, only for Witton's top scorer Adam Warlow to level after the break.
It proved to be an unlucky 13 for Albion, who had won all of their previous 12 league games at home - and Gateshead boss Ian Bogie Ian Bogie (b. December 6, 1967) in Newcastle upon Tyne is a former footballer who plied his trade in the English Football League. Newcastle United
A product of the famous Wallsend Boys Club he signed for his hometown club Newcastle United as an apprentice in July 1984 saluted his side's efforts. He said: "We probably needed to win to have a chance of the title, but we are on a fantastic run and the players have been magnificent.
"We had won our last eight games and, just like the previous week when we won at Witton in the UniBond League Cup, we could have been two or three ahead at half-time."
"We scored two great goals and Steve Bowey Steven "Steve" Bowey (born July 10 1974 in Durham, England) is an English footballer, currently playing for Gateshead. Football career
Bowey joined York City from Queen of the South in June 2006, after York had initially played down reports that he was set to join them. and Paul Brayson Paul Brayson (born September 16 1977 in Newcastle upon Tyne, England) is an English footballer, currently playing for York City. Career
Brayson started his career with Newcastle United before moving to Swansea City on loan. both had good chances, but Witton are a good side and they came back well in the second half.
"It was important we were solid and kept it tight for the first 15 minutes as we expected an onslaught, but unfortunately we conceded after just three minutes.
"It was a game of two halves and a draw was about right, although we nearly nicked it late on when James Curtis had a header tipped on to the bar."
Gateshead are on their travels again on Wednesday at Prescot Cables before hosting second-top Fleetwood Town in a massive game on Saturday.

With Wayne Phillips injured and Kris Gate on trial in Sweden, on loan York City, schemer Phil Turnbull was handed his first start.
However, it was the recalled Southern who stole the show, creating the opener for Armstrong and then producing a bullet header from Craig Baxter's cross for Gateshead's second.
Ex-Crewe striker Warlow, however, twice levelled in front of a bumper 703 crowd swollen by Northwich and Fleetwood fans whose games had been postponed due to the weather.
