FINAL SCORE | Shildon 1 Seaham Red Star

Billy Greulich-Smith rescued a point in the 96th minute at home to Seaham Red Star.

Shildon had many chances in either half to gain all three points but it was a defensive mistake that let Daniel Wilson round the keeper to give Seaham the lead after 60 minutes.

Danny Craggs hit the post with a shot from outside the box and Aidan Heywood headed over from 4 yards as Shildon piled pressure on the Seaham goal.

Billy was then sent clear to score with the last kick of the match.

MATCH PREVIEW | Shildon v Seaham Red Star by Josh Hart

Shildon look to return to winning ways at Dean Street


Following back to back away defeats on the road to Stockton and West Auckland Town respectively, Shildon will be hoping to get back on track against a Seaham Red Star side that currently sit 19th in the league.


Despite a much improved performance against high flying Stockton Town, The Railway Men have still failed to net in their last two outings, something manager Daniel Moore will look to see addressed this weekend.


Moore may be looking towards star forward Billy Greulich-Smith to continue the fine form displayed against Northallerton, which saw the striker bag a Hat-trick in a convincing 3-0 win.


With the away side leaking 23 league goals and picking up just 1 win all season, Shildon will be looking to ensure that they take maximum points against the relegation battling side, but cannot afford any complacency.


A 2-2 draw when the sides last met at Dean Street saw Shildon blow the 2-0 lead they secured in the opening 10 minutes.  Manager Daniel Moore will be hoping for a similar start when the sides meet on Saturday, but will also expect a higher level of concentration throughout, in-order to assure the 3 points


A win for Shildon could see The Railway Men move into the top 4, leapfrogging Guisborough Town, who face mid-table Newcastle Benfield.
