After nine days off for Whickham, due to Ashington playing in the FA cup, Newton Aycliffe visit The First Mortgage Glebe following a fine start to the season which has them sitting third in league.
The south Durham side have only taken four points from a possible 15 in recent games, in comparison to the Lang Jacks six. Both sides will be looking for an upturn in form on Tuesday evening.
2021/22 club top scorer Liam Jarvie has five goals to his name so far this season for the visitors – which has him leading the chart for the current campaign also. Summer recruit Oscar Taylor has three so far after his move from Ryhope CW.
The last three meetings have seen Whickham have the edge as they’re unbeaten with a win and two draws.
The Lang Jack’s last encounter was a dramatic away win at Albion Sports in the FA Vase in which Nathan Greenwood scored a 90th minute winner to secure a 4-3 win from 3-1 down.
The tie also saw the return of Kieran Galbraith to the squad, a big boost for Tony Fawcett’s squad.
Tuesday 4th October, 19:30 kick off at the First Mortgage Glebe.
