NATIONAL League North table-toppers Gloucester City suffered their first defeat of the season on Tuesday night.

And it was Gateshead who did former boss Steve Watson and his promotion-seeking York City a small favour.

Teenage midfielder Danny Greenfield scored the only goal of the game to secure a 1-0 win at the International Stadium.

As a result, the Tigers remain on 23 points and 15 ahead of York, who are set to return to action at Leamington this weekend after sitting out four consecutive fixtures.

The Brakes held AFC Fylde to a 1-1 draw at home, paving the way for Kidderminster Harriers to leapfrog the Coasters into second with a 3-0 triumph over visiting Alfreton Town.

City are now 15th in the table but are separated from seventh-placed Spennymoor Town by just three points.

Meanwhile, the Minstermen’s trip to Hereford has been rearranged for a second time. The Bulls fixture has fallen into both of City’s self-isolation periods, first set for October 24 and then for Tuesday night.

It is now slated for Tuesday, January 26 (7.45pm).
