Robins started well and Kyle Patton forced the home keeper into a good save. But Aycliffe were dangerous on the break and home stopper Greg Purves also made a good save.

At half-time it remained 0-0, but in the second half Shields twice had to clear the ball off their line.

It looked as if the teams were going to slog out a goalless draw, but two minutes into injury time the ball was played into the box and Patton netted the late winner.

On Saturday, North Shields are at home to Penrith.
