The last time Sunderland RCA played Bishop Auckland they suffered a 4 - 1 drubbing, but then we went on a 17 match unbeaten run. Bishops have turned their season round and have convincingly won their last three games scoring 13 and only conceding two.
With the manager away on holiday it was left to Gee, with the assistance of Larks and Smudge, pick a team to try and get back on a winning streak. They decided to bring fit again James Armstrong in at left back, and Larkin returned up front after work commitments on Tuesday had seen him relegated to the bench. I’m not sure if Clayton ever wins a toss, but it looked like he lost another today although the visitors elected to kick up the slope in the first half.
