Match Preview

 

Matchday 4 and it’s back to the home of football as Town host Bedlington Terriers at Bedford Terrace. Billingham will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the table while the Terriers continue to recover from a tardy start. And hopefully, the Town faithful will be decked out in their new Hummel attire as orders should have arrived at the club by the weekend. Also perfect timing for Towns upcoming FA Vase encounter against AFC Campion in a fortnights time!

 

FOCUS ON BEDLINGTON:

After a slow start to the season, where goals were at a premium, the Terriers won their first game at the third attempt last weekend, thanks in part to the introduction of two new signings who were brought in, days before the match itself. Midfielder John Sherlock arrived from Hebburn Town while Cameron Fenton left AFC Blyth and scored on his debut. Striker Fenton has played for Gateshead and Shildon and along with veteran Stephen Young, could provide a stern test for Town’s defence. Tenacious midfielder Ian Herron was facing a suspension but that may have ended in time for this fixture. The squad is predominantly the same as last seasons and nine of the starting eleven for the Chester-Le-Street game figured during the last campaign. The two who were new to the club were Dan Costello and goalkeeper Callum Dobson. David Stewart resumed goalkeeping duties against Durham. Bedlington are one of the clubs who are currently near the bottom of both the Respect and Fair Play league tables.

 

ONE TO WATCH: JOHN SHERLOCK

A surprise signing for the Terriers and quite a coup to acquire his services. Made his debut against Durham City in the 0-0 draw and by all accounts, most of their best opportunities came through Sherlock’s attacking midfield play. In all likelihood, will be Bedlington’s stand out player.

TALKING TOWN:

Goalkeeper Samuel Naylor, who played in the opening two games has been offered a chance to play in Sweden so Jack Patton filled in at Brandon. With one keeper short, Town will bring in Ollie Simpson from Thornaby. Defender Brandon Kirkbride limped off during the second half at Brandon with a ham-string and won’t be risked - neither will Luke Hogan but Lee Moore should make a return. This week Oliver & Edwards put in a seven day request for another player based on Teesside and if the said seven days are waived, could make the squad but the Esh Winning game looks a more likely target. Elsewhere, Craig Hutchinson lies second in the goal charts with four goals, one behind Easingtons Liam Adamson. And and indication of Town’s fitness levels and willingness to finish games on top, eight of the eleven goals were scored during the second half.
