Gateshead moved up to fourth in the Vanarama National League with a thumping 7-1 win against Hartlepool.

The visitors took a deserved lead in the eighth minute when Joe Grey almost allowed the chance to go begging before producing a neat finish.

Callum Whelan had a goal ruled out for Gateshead before they equalised from the penalty spot in the 28th minute. Luke Hannant slotted home after Dajaune Brown had been tripped in the area by Manny Onariase.

The home side went ahead early in the second half when Kieron Evans made the most of a poor attempted clearance and fired past Pete Jameson.

Brown headed home unmarked for 3-1 and it was four when Regan Booty drove through a crowded penalty area shortly afterwards.

Brown scored his second with a dinked finish and Whelan netted almost a carbon copy sixth with 15 minutes remaining.

Tom Allan sealed a thoroughly miserable night for the visitors with a late seventh.
