Easington Colliery travel to Team Northumbria on Saturday afternoon as the Colliers look for a third consecutive win.
Team Northumbria currently top Northern League Division Two, three points ahead of second place Stockton Town while Easington Colliery sit in eighth.
Three points on Saturday could potentially lift the Colliers to fifth and manager Paul Frame believes his side have the potential to cause an upset.
He said: “If we’re on our game, we can go out there and give them a good run for their money.
“We’ve won our last two and have hopefully put our bad spell behind us. A win on Saturday over Team North would get people talking about us again.”
Easington claimed a second consecutive win when they beat Alnwick Town last Saturday and Frame was pleased with the attitude of his players.
“We didn’t play our best stuff but our heads could have dropped when we fell behind and when they equalised. But, we remained focused. We ground out the win which was very pleasing to see. Those three points are just as important as the three points we got at Durham.”
Team Northumbria are the student side of Northumbria University and have always been known for their attractive style of football.
“We know we’re in for a tough game. They’re a very good side and have some very good players who play football the right way. We did well to get a draw at our place against them but I would love us to go one better on Saturday and snatch all three points,” added Frame.
Team Northumbria play their home games at Coach Lane, Newcastle and kick-off on Saturday is at 3pm.
