The RCA management team was forced into making two changes to the team who played in the mid-week defeat to Stockton Town, into the starting eleven came Lilley and Callen replacing the injured Swansbury and Davison.
This was the fourth local derby between the two teams this season with both teams winning one, the other being a draw, so a close match was expected.
