Easington Colliery host Alnwick Town on Saturday afternoon with the Colliers looking to build on last week’s win at Durham City.
The Colliers claimed only a second win of 2017 at Durham last week and manager Paul Frame is looking for his side to go on another unbeaten run.
“We were very pleased with last week’s win at Durham,” he said. “They’re a very good side and we made them look very average. Everyone played well that day and it was good to see Busta (David Paul) and Jack (Pounder) amongst the goals.”
“That win last week will hopefully mean we can kickstart our season. We’ve been wanting a win like that for about six weeks and now we have it, we’ll be looking to build on it and climb a couple of spots in the table.”
Easington will be without Pounder who is away on holiday, but Jake Fenton and Chris Freeman are expected to be fit having both picked up injuries at Durham.
Alnwick Town currently sit 15th in Northern League Division Two, but are bottom of the form league having only picked up a single point in their last seven games.
However, Frame believes Alnwick have the potential to trouble Easington, especially with recent signing Samuel Perez.
Perez, the brother of Newcastle United’s Ayoze, signed from Berwick Rangers and has spent time at Team Northumbria in the past.
Frame added: “We know Alnwick are a good side on their day and we’ll have to be aware of that. They’ve recently signed Perez and he’s a good lively player who will be looking to cause us problems.
“We will be going out onto the pitch in search of all three points in front of what is hopefully a decent crowd.”
Kick-off at the Welfare Park on Saturday afternoon is at 15:00.
