Heed Stand on Brink of a "Good" Spell, Says Mills; Gateshead Manager Is Confident of a Positive End to the Season for Side


Byline: Steve Brown Sports Writer steve.sports-brown@trinitymirror.com

GARY MILLS is confident Gateshead stand on the brink of a "good last three months of the season".

The Tynesiders take on Wrexham at the International Stadium tonight, in an FA Trophy third-round replay following Saturday's 1-1 draw at the Racecourse Ground.

Reduced admission is PS10 for adults, PS5 concessions and PS3 for juniors.

Much of Mills' optimism hails from a profound and unstinting faith in his players' ability.

But more recently it has received accentuation from an upturn in form.

Despite serene progress in knockout contests until a 7-0 FA Cup defeat at West Brom, before then the Heed had won only one league game in eight, and four in 17.

They had just eight clean sheets all season.

But since the Hawthorns, they are unbeaten in five across all competitions, with two wins and three clean sheets.

And yet it is not their Cup exit to which Mills points as a possible turning point in the campaign, but last Wednesday's Trophy second-round replay win at home to Grimsby Town - who equalised late on, before being beaten during extra-time with 10 men, third substitute Lenell John-Lewis having been forced off with an injury. …
