Published at 09:34, Friday, 14 March 2014
THE fight to beat the drop from Division One of the Northern Alliance will see two teams from the Tyne Valley go toe-to-toe.
Hexham host rivals Heddon tomorrow knowing victory would put to bed any lingering relegation fears, while the visitors are looking for a crucial three points which would rekindle their slim hopes of jumping out of the drop zone for the first time this season.
Ponteland United could lend a helping hand to their local counterparts if they defeat bottom club Willington Quay Saints as three points would realistically put an end to the strugglers' chances of getting out of trouble.
Having won four out of their last four games, Stocksfield have a tough task to make it five on the bounce as they host Whitley Bay A who are still very much in the Premier Division title race.
Meanwhile, Wallington look to get back on track and close the gap on the chasing pack as they welcome a Blyth Town side who are two places ahead in fifth, and four points better off.
After enduring an embarrassing 10-0 drubbing, Prudhoe Town need a big reaction and will look to put things right when they entertain second bottom Coxhoe Athletic in the Wearside League.
Time is running out for Ryton and Crawcrook Albion to get off the bottom of the Northern League and they face a tough trip to promotion chasing West Allotment Celtic tomorrow.
A place in the final of the prestigious Northumberland FA Women's Cup awaits Tynedale Ladies if they manage to overcome the challenge of visitors Forest Hall in Sunday's semi-final tie.
Meanwhile, Prudhoe Town Women are in North East Women's Football League action as they visit Birtley Town Ladies.
