North Shields host The Hornets on Bank Holiday Monday, who make the short journey to North Tyneside.

Hebburn Town made an impressive start to their campaign, picking up 7 points from their 3 games before losing to Stockton Town. On Saturday they came from behind to win 2-1 at home to Sheffield.

Marc Nash brings his side into the contest after defeat at the hands of Long Eaton United, a game which Shields will look to bounce back from.

The last time the two sides clashed at the Daren Persson Stadium, The Robins took the spoils with goals from Dan Wilson, Gary Ormston and Cam Cunningham in a 3-2 win.
