After the disappointment of losing at Hebburn last week but bouncing back with a 3-0 victory in midweek at Jarrow , Town are again on their travels at the weekend when they travel to Newcastle to play West Allotment Celtic on their 4G artificial pitch.

"I was hugely disappointed last weekend with our performance at Hebburn but we got the reaction in midweek we wanted when we played Jarrow. We were always in control of the game and played some reality good football, scored 3 good goals, could and should have scored more and kept a clean sheet" manager Darren Trotter remarked. "The good news is the 4G pitch means the game will go ahead barring another big fall of snow and we have a chance to put more points on the board and cement our position as league leaders. I would rather have points in the bag than be playing catch up" he concluded.

There will be changes to the team on Saturday. Mattie Crossen will be on international duty playing for England at St Georges park. "To play for your country is an honour and I'm lucky to be able to enjoy the facilities at the national stadium but I'd rather be playing with the team" was all he would say when asked for a few words. Charles Graham will also be missing as he also is on representative duties for the County Under 18 team, who play Newcastle on Teesside. "It's easy to forget that Charlie is only 16 years old but he's a vital cog in our machine. He's a natural athlete and shows maturity beyond his age. He is concerned because of his recent addition to the squad that he doesn't usually figure in players profiles in match day programmes but I like it that he sneaks in under the radar" the manager commented.

On the plus side Aaron Ramsbottom and Dale Ejgie will be back after missing the midweek game through work. Shaun Hudson and Andrew Shepherd who missed the last game through injury will have pre match fitness tests on the day. Elliott McGlade is still out suspended.

Best wishes
