In a vastly improved performance, Whitley were extremely unlucky to lose 3-2 at FA Vase holders Morpeth Town on Wednesday evening, the winning goal coming in the 94th minute.
Former Bay defender Chris Reid gave the home side the lead but Callum Patton levelled from the penalty spot two minutes later. Morpeth went ahead again after 65 minutes but Patton equalised for the second time with 12 minutes left. Whitley mighty have snatched all three points but were cruelly denied by the stoppage time goal.
* On Saturday Whitley are away to Seaham Red Star while the Reserves are also away, at Ashington Colliers in the Northumberland Benevolent Bowl.
