THERE will be an added incentive for both Wallington and Stocksfield when they go head-to-head at the weekend.
Enjoying a friendly relationship off-the-pitch, they will put all that aside on Saturday as the chance to finish as top dog from Tynedale in the Northern Alliance Premier Division heats up.
Currently, Wallington are one point better off having played a game extra but seventh placed Stocksfield go into the encounter as the in-form team as they have went unbeaten in six games.
Boosted by their dramatic 3-2 victory over New Fordley, Hexham look to continue to climb the table as they face a Bedlington Terriers Reserves team level on points towards the foot of Division One.
Second bottom Heddon are still harbouring an outside hope of beating the drop but face an uphill battle as they entertain promotion chasing Newcastle Chemfica (Independent).
Elsewhere, Ponteland United look to put their hammering at the hands of leaders Cramlington Town behind them when they make the trip to Newcastle University.
Prudhoe Town will travel to Gateshead Leam Rangers in the Wearside League in the pursuit of three points against a team just two above bottom placed Hartlepool.
Northern League basement boys Ryton and Crawcrook Albion, meanwhile, welcome fifth placed Heaton Stannington, before making the trip to Northallerton Town on Wednesday.
Tynedale Ladies look to get their title charge in the North East Women's Football League back on track as they travel to Redcar Athletic, while neighbouring Prudhoe Town Women head to Easingwold Town.
