After last week's postponement we welcome AFC Newbiggin to Farnacres for a game where both teams will be desperate for a win.

In the reverse fixture back in October 2016, both teams were reduced to 10 men as a late equaliser saw the game finish 2-2.

AFC Newbiggin's last game was a 0-4 loss at high-flying Ponteland Utd whereas Mick and his boys will be keen to build on the 3-0 victory at Wallington.

Kick off is 2pm and entry is free. Should be a cracker.

Rutherford 0-1 AFC Newbiggin

An afternoon to forget as we struggled with both the opposition and the elements.

With the wind in our faces we looked steady without creating anything, and nor did the visitors despite their physical and vocal approach. They could count themselves lucky to still have 11 on the pitch though as a foul was awarded after only 5 minutes that looked like it was committed by a last defender.

Despite the wind in our backs in the 2nd half we again struggled and resorted to 'route one' which the commanding defenders of Newbiggin lapped up with ease.

The visitors grabbed the all important goal just before the hour and despite being reduced to 10 men for some daft bookings, they held out to take the points.

We can learn at lot from this as we need to be able to assess each game and react accordingly. The last thing we should have done was try and play Newbiggin at their own game, but we did and they beat us.
