THE tough games continue for Whitley Bay FC as they face two more top four sides in the coming days.
Saturday sees them travel to Teesside to take on fourth place Norton and Stockton Ancients where they look certain to be missing Paul Robinson and probably Craig McFarlane, whose injuries are proving slow to heal.
Manager Ian Chandler will be desperate for his side to show an improvement on their recent form which has seen them suffer three consecutive defeats.
Then on Tuesday, October 25, second top West Auckland are the visitors to Hillheads with Whitley seeking revenge after losing 4-2 at Darlington Road in the League Cup last month.
Auckland are one of the most improved sides of the season and will be tough opponents, but the backing of a vocal Hillheads crowd could help turn the game in the Bay’s favour.
