PENRITH FA CUP MATCH PREVIEW
Whitley are back in Emirates FA Cup action today and they are on their travels once again, this time at Penrith in the Preliminary Round of the world’s most famous cup competition. Having overcome fellow Northern League side Seaham Red Star in the last round, they will be hoping for a similar outcome at Frenchfield Stadium, kick off 3.00pm. Both sides were beaten in midweek, and while it was Whitley’s first defeat since January, Penrith suffered their third loss in the league this season. However, they achieved possibly the outstanding result of the Extra Preliminary Round, beaten much fancied West Auckland 2-1 so Whitley can expect a tough game.
Jack Byerley returns to the Bay line up having missed the Morpeth game in midweek while Callum Anderson will have a fitness test. Josh Nearney has a foot problem so Graham Williams is on stand by. Ross Wilkinson, Liam Brooks and Andy Robertson are still injured while Callum Patton is unavailable. Cam Cunningham is added to the squad.
Meanwhile the Reserves are at home to Seaton Delaval in the Northern Alliance Premier Division, kick off 2.30pm.
