Town started with a radical new 4-3-3 line-up. It produced very few chances for Town in the first half hour, when Gateshead had the better chances. Devitt came closest when he hit the bar from a free kick on 37 mins. 5 mins later Southwell and Naylor both mishit good chances and Naylor blasted it over the bar.
Grimsby went ahead at the start of the second half. Devitt's free kick was cleared and Andi Thanoj volleyed in from just outside the box.
Town gained confidence from the goal and went agonisingly close to going 2-0 when Devitt broke and hit the post again, with the ball trickling along the line.
With 11 minutes left, Gillies equalised against the run of play with a free kick.
