Tomorrow night the Robins dust themselves off and go once again as we welcome old friends Consett to the Daren Persson Stadium.

Marc Nash and his men will be looking to put last Saturday’s frustrating afternoon behind them, losing 1-0 to Grantham, a game full of bewilderment and controversy.

Our visitors, the Steelmen have picked up form in recent weeks, winning 3 of their 5 games, on Saturday they were narrowly beaten by league leaders Worksop despite taking the lead.

Earlier in the season, the two sides played out a 0-0 stalemate at the Belle View Stadium back in August.
