Revenge on the cards for Stocksfield
Published at 15:42, Thursday, 20 February 2014
STOCKSFIELD face their mates at Gateshead Rutherford this weekend looking for revenge.
They went down 3-2 in the reverse fixture, Sean Wilkinson adding to goals from Sam Moore and Jay Keelan - all three who were playing in the Hexham and District Sunday League at the time.
Gateshead's form has dipped since then and find themselves just one point off safety, while hosts Stocksfield are seven points better off than their rivals with three games in hand.
Meanwhile, Wallington's title credentials will be given a stern test as they make the trip to leaders Walker Central. Walker currently enjoy a five point advantage but have played an extra game.
While they would remain rooted in the Division One drop zone, Heddon could cut bottom club Willington Quay Saints further adrift to seven points if they pick up the victory on their travels to their fellow strugglers.
Eight points clear of the relegation places, Hexham want to avoid having to look over their shoulders and they visit a resurgent Newcastle University.
Meanwhile, Ponteland United could go as high as sixth if they earn maximum points when third placed Wooler come into town.
Chopwell are one game away from a county final and a victory at home to Shildon Railway will book their place in the Durham FA Minor Cup showdown.
Prudhoe Town, who were sent crashing out of the Wearside League Cup after losing to Easington Colliery midweek, are still trying to get their Northumberland FA Senior Benevolent Bowl quarter-finals tie with Shankhouse played after four weeks.
A double header is up for Northern League strugglers Ryton and Crawcrook Albion as they host Brandon United on Sunday before travelling to Darlington Railway Athletic on Tuesday.
Tynedale Ladies will bid for a place in the Northumberland FA Women's Cup semi-finals as they visit Ashington Woodhorn Lane Ladies, while Prudhoe Town Women are away to Easingwold Town in the North East Women's Football League.
