NORTHUMBERLAND SENIOR CUP MATCH PREVIEW
After a weekend without a game, Whitley return to action tonight at home to Newcastle University in the Northumberland Senior Cup 1st Round. Following three high scoring victories, Whitley will be hoping to make it four wins in a row for the first time in just over a year when they take on the University side, who were promoted to the Northern League this season. James Martin misses the game through suspension but Craig McFarlane is available again and could return to the side.
The teams have met once previously in this competition, way back in 1968 in the Final at St James Park, with Whitley running out 4-0 winners, the goals coming from John Gatens (3) and Billy Wright. See programme cover from that game.
*Should the scores be level after 90 minutes, extra time will be played, followed if necessary by penalties to decide the winners.
