Match Preview | Shildon (A)

The opening weekend of the 2023/2024 season has come and gone and Northallerton looks ahead to tonight's first away game against recently relegated Shildon AFC.

Both sides earnt points on the opening day despite having constraining fortunes.

Season so far...

Northallerton hosted Division Two champions Boro Rangers on the opening in what was a hard-fought game that lacked moments of quality.

Owen Clarkson's strike for the visitor's goal and the build-up play from Jamie Davis that led to his winning of a penalty were the two standout moments. Dale Hopson converted the aforementioned penalty in the 90th minute to secure a point for Northallerton.

Shildon on the other hand, had a more straightforward result after running out 3-1 winners on the road against West Allotment Celtic.

Joe Posthill, Ciaran Banks and Alex White would net for Shildon before Cyril Giraud would reduce the deficit.

Team News

Town goes into tonight's fixture missing both Callum Luck and Charlie Graham through injury whereas Dan Founders, Alistair Banks and Dan Jones are all unavailable for selection.

Former-Town players, Ciaran Banks and Luca Sartini are both on the books of Shildon and may feature in tonight's game.

Ally, Ally, Ally!
