Sunderland RCA were back on the road again for tonight's Northern League match at Ashington, with both sides looking for at least a top eight finish at the end of the season.
RCA made two changes to the side that won handsomely at Whitley Bay last Tuesday - Greg Swansbury and Nathan O'Neill were replaced by James Armstrong and Jonathan Davis, with Craig Hodgson switching from midfield to central defence to partner Ross Preston, who captained the side.
The two sides lined up as follows:
Ashington: Grant; Christensen; Salmon; Stephenson; Scott (c); Buchanan; McAndrew; Downey; Stevens; Cartwright; Pearson.
RCA: Finch; Noble; Hodgson; Preston (c); McGuinness; Davis; Charlton; Armstrong; Larkin; Page; Callen.
