Tomorrow sees the Robins in action for only the second time this year and the first home game of 2023 as they face high flying Stocksbridge Park Steels, who currently sit in 3rd place. With no league action since the 2nd January, Marc Nash’s men find themselves in 16th place going into the contest.

The two sides met earlier in the season, and played out a 1-1 draw at the start of December, where Tom Potter opened the scoring from the spot before being pegged back in the 88th minute as Stocksbridge equalized through Dylan Youmbi.

Stocksbridge have managed to play out four league games since the last two sides met, winning all 4 games along the way.

A good game is in store, Marc Nash and the lads will know that they will need to be to be at their very best to ensure that the all important 3 points stay in North Tyneside and move them up the table.
