Match Preview: Whickham FC vs Ryhope CW

RCW return to league action this weekend after a month off, when we take on Whickham FC at the Glebe Sports Ground.

Since the last outing in the league, an away loss to Hebburn in late August, we have had three cup games.

We beat Chester-le-Street in the Vase, before being knocked out by Dunston, and followed that up with a Durham Challenge Cup victory over Crook on Wednesday.

Hopefully, we can get our first league victory since opening day when we beat Newton Aycliffe 2-0.

Our opponents, a newly-promoted side, have had a tough start to life in Division One.

They currently sit bottom of the table, with one point from seven games.

Ryhope will be without captain Ben Riding for the game due to his sending off against Dunston.

First choice ‘keeper Jonny Ball has been added to what was already a long injury list, hurting his ankle while warming up against Crook.

Joey Melvin, Corey Barnes, Josh Home-Jackson, and Davey Gordon are the other players currently unavailable for selection.
