Whickham travel to West Auckland Town on Tuesday evening in the EBAC Northern League – a fixture that was rescheduled due to weather.
The hosts have the same amount of points as ourselves (39) however they have played 3 games more.
With only one point out of nine at home in 2023, The Wanted Stadium hasn’t proven to be an easy place to play in recent times for West Auckland after going 11 unbeaten at home earlier in the season.
Forward Cieran Jackson has 11 league goals so far this season and is one of the league’s top scorers too.
The reverse fixture at The Glebe in August saw The Lang Jacks win 2-0 thanks to goals from Scott Robson and Garon Garside.
Whickham are looking to put their two previous defeats behind them against the league leaders and return to the early 2023 form Lee Haldane’s men were showing.
Kaleb Young and Jamie Dunn will return from suspension for the trip.
Tuesday 14th February – The Wanted Stadium – Kick off 19:30
Adults – £6
Concessions – £4
Under 16’s – £1
