Mike Williamson’s Gateshead suffered their fourth straight defeat at the hands of league leaders King’s Lynn Town on Saturday.

The 36-year-old player-manager showed his frustration following the narrow defeat saying his side were ‘not good enough’.

Adam Marriott’s 73rd-minute strike proved the difference in a tight affair but the defeat has piled the misery on the Heed.

“Not good enough. I am getting sick of opposition managers saying that we were the better team and that we did not deserve that,” said Williamson.

“We did dominate the first-half, large portions of the second-half and we had the better chances – but came away with no points.”

The Heed thought they had snatched a late equaliser directly from a corner but the goal was disallowed for a foul on the Linnets’ goalkeeper.

“The lads gave everything, they left everything out there but we have got to make sure we are finishing the job which is not happening at the minute,” he added.

Marriott’s goal left Gateshead slumped in 11th-place, however, Williamson’s men return to action on Tuesday with a trip to strugglers Kidderminster.
