MATCH PREVIEW | Whitley Bay v Shildon Match Preview, 5th October 3pm by Josh Hart

Shildon return to league action against Whitley Bay.


Following a 2-0  win away at Willington in league cup group F, the Railway Men will be looking to continue the fine football displayed, as they take a trip to Hillheads Park to face 16th placed Whitley Bay.


Shildon, who currently sit 6th in the league, will be hoping to finally secure all 3 points following an indifferent set of results in recent weeks.


The victory at Willington will, however provide Daniel Moore’s men with confidence of securing back to back away wins, which could in-turn see the Railway Men jump to 4th in the league.


A 3-1 victory for Shildon when the sides last met at Hillheads park, will be a result manager Daniel Moore will be looking to replicate this Saturday.


Although Manager Moore will be prioritising a win first and foremost, The Railway Men will be hopeful of securing a second clean sheet in four days against a Whitley Bay side that have netted just 12 times in the league this season.


With Shildon currently being the leagues second highest scorers (29 league goals) a clean sheet could go along way to increasing the Railway Men’s goal difference – something which could prove critical come the end of the season.


A win would see Shildon move onto 21 points, potentially leaving the Railway Men just a point off both second placed Stockton Town and third placed Consett (with 2 games in hand).

Shildon looking to finish strong in the build up to the Durham Challenge Cup final  

by Ash Brighton

Shildon bring their league fixtures to a close as they travel to Whitley Bay this Saturday in the Ebac Northern League Division 1.

The railway men will be looking to follow up the two team’s last meeting back in March, a 2-2 draw, with a win as they bring the curtain down on another league season.

While manager Daniel Moore is aware some eyes may well be shifting towards the big day at the Stadium of Light in May, he’s challenged the side to maintain their high standards since the festive period.

“The coming weeks are about keeping the standards and professionalism that the players have set themselves.”

“Since Christmas we have been one of the form teams in the league and we are looking to finish on a high which could possibly see us finish in the top 6.”

However, the manager is more than aware of what tomorrow’s game represents and does have May’s cup final in the background of his mind.

“Tomorrow will be good for me to see who is mentally ready for the last games.”

Shildon’s last result saw them draw 1-1 with local rivals Bishop Auckland in a fiercely contested matchup but will be looking for an ever better result against a mid-table Whitley Bay side.

Shildon V Whitley Bay Match Preview, 9 March 3pm

Is it a four in a row?

Shildon AFC are looking for a fourth home win on the trot when former FA Vase winners Whitley Bay visit Dean Street this Saturday.

Whitley Bay, who are currently 16th in the league, will be looking for revenge on their visit to Shildon, a fixture rearranged from February, when the pitch was frozen.

This will be the first meeting between the two sides this season and follows Shildon’s double in the last campaign. In March we were 2-1 victors at home followed by a 6-0 away win in April.

Manager Daniel Moore revealed David Palmer is a doubt due to injury but Dale Mulligan came through training during the week so he will be available. Some of the younger talent will also be making an appearance.

Last Saturday saw Shildon AFC notch home a third victory of the season over second placed Consett with a 3-0 win.

Moore said: “We just need to keep building on the recent form we have had and the aim is to finish the season strong and not lose any games between now and the end of the season”.

“I was pleased with a clean sheet against Consett who are a team that like to attack and we took our goals well” He went on to say “I was pleased with the energy and fitness of the players especially after a tough semi final on Tuesday”.
