On Wednesday night we welcome the high flying Dunston to the Daren Persson Stadium, who currently sit in 3rd place and beat league leaders Stockton Town 2-1 at the weekend.

Dunston come into the game in good form, winning their last 3 league games and will be a stern test for the Robins who won their last two games.

North Shields will also welcome back former Robins manager Jon McDonald, who is a part of the management team at Dunston.

The Robins currently sit in 9th place and only two points behind Wednesday’s visitors, which shows just how tight it is and a win could propel the Robins up the league table.

As mentioned earlier, the Robins come into the game on the back of two wins on the bounce and shows that the work put in off the pitch is paying dividends on the pitch.

We hope to see you there and cheer the lads on!
