Sunderland Echo - - Sport -

(home), the Wear­siders are con­fi­dent of mak­ing a hat-trick against the ninth-placed Bish­ops at Ash­brooke (2.15pm kick­off ).

Chair­man Paul Gee­han said: “We are look­ing for­ward to the visit of Bishop Auck­land with an­tic­i­pa­tion and ex­pect a closely con­tested match.

“How­ever, we­hope that our re­cent good form con­tin­ues in what is sure to be an en­ter­tain­ing fix­ture.”

Just three points sep­a­rates the two sides in the league.
