Straight after our game at Ponteland we travel again to play Wallington

In the reverse fixture we did well to win 4-2 but since then Wallington have been in improved form. They are in 5th place on 36 points.

However, we have quite a good record of playing on their pitch over recent seasons so we'll be very keen to extend that.

Kick off is 2:30pm and the pitch is Oakford Park, NE61 4EJ

Wellington 5-1 Rutherford

Much improved performance from the debacle at Ponteland yet oddly a very similar result.

We took the lead on 3 mins as Lee Watson hit a screamer from 35 yards that clipped the base of the post on its way in. But the lead latest 2 minutes as Wallington hit their own screamer that was brilliantly saved by Heiniger but the rebound tapped in.

The 2nd goal was only 7 mins later as a bit of a howler gave their forward a simple chance to score.

We kept working hard and both Moore and Fullen had good long range shots kept out and McMeekin put a header just over.

But Wallington's forward line were lively and 3 times they dissected our defence to lob our keeper.

Overall the effort was so much better but we're leaking goals at alarming rate. The extended break has absolutely killed us as we were a good team before Christmas but the almost impossible task of finding both consistency and also available players is proving difficult.

Three more games this week starting Monday at home to FC United of Newcastle and we will continue to get behind every single player who turns out for us.
