WEST AUCKLAND MATCH PREVIEW
Whitley return to Hillheads Park tomorrow following three games of mixed fortunes on their travels. A narrow and slightly unlucky defeat at Stockton was followed at the weekend by an exciting FA Cup victory at Thackley before a night to forget at Dunston on Tuesday.
This weekend’s opponents West Auckland are one of the favourites for the title but they too have had a mixed start to the season, winning comfortably at Washington in the FA Cup and at Ryhope CW in the league but losing narrowly to both Dunston and Blyth AFC.
Aiming to bounce back from Tuesday’s defeat, Whitley should have Callum Anderson back in the centre of defence for what is sure to be a tough game. Kick off is at 3pm.
The Reserves are away to Seaton Delaval with kick off at 2.30pm.
Whitley will be at home to Barnoldswick Town in the Preliminary Round of the FA Cup next Saturday 25th August. The Lancashire side, who play in the North West Counties League Premier Division, won their Extra Preliminary Round replay 4-0 at Billingham Synthonia on Wednesday evening. This will be the first time that we have played Barnoldswick.
