TEAM NEWS

Blyth will look to extend their lead at the top of the Evo-Stik Premier Division when they travel to Cheshire on Tuesday evening to face their nearest challengers Nantwich Town. Blyth ran out comfortable winners earlier in the season when Robbie Dale and Stephen Turnbull both scored free-kicks to record a 2-0 success.

On Saturday, Blyth dispatched Skelmersdale with the minimum of fuss as a brace from Daniel Maguire and efforts from Luke Armstrong and Jordan Watson sealing a comfortable 4-0 success.

Our hosts saw off a spirited performance from Ilkeston on Saturday as they secured 3 valuable points with a 3-2 win. The result extended the Dabbers’ unbeaten run to 13 games.
