Newly appointed manager Martin Swales was in attendance at the game but it was Ian Smith who selected the team.
Carl Morris continued in goal for the injured Carmichael with Bythway back on the left side of defence to make way for Wray. The rest of the team was the same as for the Durham County Cup match on Tuesday.
RCA started smartly without testing Hunter in the the Jarrow goal. In the sixth minute Gary Wood slid a great ball into the path of Barton who moved it on to Hughes but the RCA striker's shot was deflected for a corner. Two corners followed with Jarrow's defence making sure that RCA attack did not make contact with the ball.
Disaster struck in the 14th minute when a corner to the far post was picked up by Wright, he slipped past Preston before going down under a challenge inside the area and the referee pointed to the spot. Campbell stepped up and converted the penalty.
