ON this day two years ago, Witton Albion travelled to Tyneside and stunned South Shields.

Tonight, fuelled by memories of that incredible victory, they aim to do so again.

Carl Macauley's men visit the 1st Cloud Arena looking to spoil the party as former England striker Kevin Phillips takes charge of his first home game as Mariners manager.

Following their 2-1 defeat to fellow strugglers Mickleover on Saturday, Albion are currently four points adrift of safety going into tonight's game having not won a league game since October.

However, their aforementioned last trip to South Shields was their 2-1 win in January 2020, when injury-time goals from MJ Monaghan and Kyle Sambor earned them a stunning win.

Macauley could give a debut to forward Jesse Dowling, who joined the club on dual registration from AFC Liverpool yesterday.

Closer to home, Northwich Victoria are also in action as they travel to Ashton Athletic in the North West Counties League Premier Division.

As they tackle the first of three consecutive away games, Steve Wilkes' side are looking to win three league games in a row for the first time this season after home wins over Squires Gate and Litherland REMYCA since the turn of the year.

Tonight's hosts are hovering just above the relegation zone but a 2-0 win over Vauxhall Motors last time out ended a winless run in the league that stretched back 10 games.

Both matches kick off at 7.45pm.
