RCA welcomed Guisborough Town to Sunderland LGV Park for this EBAC Northern League fixture. RCA would be looking to avenge the 2-0 scoreline from the previous meeting between the two teams this season.

The late withdrawal of Sunderland AFC Work Experience goalkeeper Harrison Bond meant that RCA had to make one change to the team who performed so heroically last week at West Auckland with Keaton Marrs stepping into the No 1 shirt.

There was also a welcome return to the squad for club captain Greg Swansbury after a lengthy spell out with a rib injury.

The teams lined up as follows:

Sunderland RCA: Marrs, Jakab, Charlton, Hawkins ©, Errington, Hennis, Lawrence, Carr, Davison, Annang-Colquhoun, Weirs. Subs: Winn, Watts, Swansbury, Richardson, Allen

Guisborough Town: Dean, Redman, Jackson, Dillon, Hood, Risborough, Bartliff, Waites, Preston, Johnson, Rowe. Subs: Marshall, Hope, Wright-Simpson, Spozio, Fairless.

A clean sheet no less, ending a little run of low scoring games. A very good and welcome change that, after the previous few weeks of multi goal extravaganzas. And very well deserved.

A fullish squad, excellent team defending from start to finish, with good shape, as the coaches say, and everybody working hard from front to back. West Auckland are a very good side and, on the evidence of last weeks games, and despite the results, probably a little bit better than Consett. I thought we were the better side throughout against Consett, while at West we needed to dig in and defend for some considerable spells. Not that our new keeper had many saves to make. A couple, and some excellent catching and punching, but credit to the lads in front of him who protected him well. Overall we had the better of the chances, could have scored at least another, but had to settle for Mark Davison’s superb volley to finish off a lovely move from box to box.

Anyway, into the top half of the table, though the hard work starts now to stay there. Never want to be looking downover rather than up. Still, decent progress being made. More than a little bit annoying though to think what might have been with a little better run of the ball, and that's not allowing for our injuries, which have been continuous. Thornaby the other week, Redcar Athletic a few days before that, and Crook and Penrith a bit earlier. All games we could have won, and a couple we should have won.
