Gateshead 3 Guiseley 0: Bowman’s brace sees Guiseley return home empty-handed

Guiseley left Gateshead with nothing as the North East side’s striker Ryan Bowman scored a clinical double in a 3-0 win.


The first half saw the hosts have the better chances, with Guiseley making a number of important blocks with the likes of Jake Lawlor and Will Hatfield putting their bodies in the way to prevent home efforts.

Jon Shaw went close when he was able to make contact with a cross, but his effort was wide of Steven Drench’s goal.

The second half started with Gateshead attacking from the off and they took the lead when Rob Ramshaw passed to Bowman, who finished calmly.

Gateshead doubled their lead when CJ Hamilton’s effort was well saved by Drench but Bowman was in the right place to get his second.

Hatfield saw his header cleared off the line and Nicky Boshell saw a free-kick go wide before Danny Johnson added a third for the hosts.
