Sunderland Echo - - Football -

Eas­ing­ton Col­liery travel to Heaton Stan­ning­ton to­mor­row and man­ager Paul Frame is hop­ing to get back to win­ning ways.

Frame said: “Af­ter a very dis­ap­point­ing re­sult against Thorn­aby, we are hop­ing to bounce back.

“They are a good side and we are go­ing in search of the points.”

Striker Jack Pounder will re­turn to the squad fol­low­ing a head in­jury, but Reece Ken­ney will miss out through sus­pen­sion. Goal­keeper Kyle Don­ald­son’s sus­pen­sion hasn’t kicked in yet.

Harry Wood will re­turn to the squad af­ter an in­jury pre­vented him from play­ing last week.

Ch­ester-le-Street man­ager Colin Wake is look­ing for­ward to the visit of Thorn­aby. He said: “it’s a very im­por­tant game to try and match the re­sult with the im­proved per­for­mances that we have been putting in of late.

“We are miss­ing Craig Mar­ron through in­jury and Chris Stephen­son is sus­pended, but, other than that, we have a full squad to se­lect from.”

Crook Town jour­ney to Blyth, while lead­ers Tow Law Town visit Ry­ton & Crawcrook Al­bion.

Willing­ton are at home to Jar­row and vis­it­ing man­ager Dave Bell, said: “In mid­week, we had an ex­cel­lent 5-1 away win at Silksworth (in the Durham Chal­lenge Cup), which was a great re­sult for us against a good side, and par­tic­u­larly pleas­ing was our sec­ond-half per­for­mance.

“Willing­ton will be an­other re­ally tough game and we have Jor­don Mel­lish sus­pended, with Nick Quinn, Peter Kane, David Smith and David Fit­tis un­avail­able. “Max Kirkham, Josh Al­lan, Jak Quantrill, and Grant Pressling all re­turn, hav­ing missed the game in mid­week and Dean Martin has com­pleted his three­match ban and re­turns to the squad.” Bell added: “Willing­ton is a dif­fi­cult place to go and, fol­low­ing two league de­feats, we will be look­ing to get­ting back to pick­ing up points. “We do know though that this is go­ing to be a hard game for us, but it is a one we are re­ally look­ing for­ward to and will be well pre­pared for.”

Heb­burn Town, in fourth place af­ter a good start to the sea­son, travel to Bran­don United who are fourth bot­tom.

Fifth-top Billing­ham Town en­ter­tain mid-ta­ble Esh Win­ning.

Town have made a good start to the sea­son and are de­ter­mined to main­tain their push for pro­mo­tion this sea­son.

Northaller­ton Town, sit­ting sec­ond, travel to Al­nwick.

Sam Grainger, Stephen Cheese­man, Liam Jarvie and Matty Dixon are all ex­pected to play, but Colin An­der­son is miss­ing.
