Fresh from a free weekend, Whitley Bay return to Northern League action on Saturday when they play Dunston UTS to Hillheads Park.
Over the years the two sides have been well matched and the visitors have always proved a tough nut to crack, so much so that Whitley have never beaten the Gateshead side by more than a single goal at Hillheads.
Dunston are rebuilding under new management and are currently in the unfamiliar position of 15th place, due largely to a dismal home record.
Their away form is good and this weekend’s game looks set to be another closely contested affair.
Whitley will be hoping to continue where they left off two weeks ago when they defeated high-flying Bishop Auckland. Kick-off is at 3pm.
