Match pre-view

Dunston UTS FC face a long journey down to Cleethorpes Town this Saturday as 5th faces 4th in the Pitching-In Northern Premier League East.

Both sides are in good form heading into the game. Dunston do have a game in hand, however Cleethorpes Town hold a 7 point lead. With sides just out-side the play-off places only a few points behind Chris Swailes’ side, the out-come Saturdays encounter could be pivotal in Dunston’s push for promotion this season.

Dunston UTS FC Assistant Manager Jon McDonald spoke to The Sunderland Echo’s Northern Goal show with Mark Carruthers and Paul Dixon earlier in the week as they looked ahead to the weekend’s games.

“Big game, Stocksbridge on Saturday was a big game, as they’re in and around the play-offs. We knew these two game were going to be important for our season. We got 3 points on Saturday, so we’ve done the first part of the job, so we’ll be going to Cleethorpes and looking to take something from the game”

"They’re sat above us in the play-offs, so we know it’s going to be tough, we’ve obviously done our home-work this week, we know a little  bit about how they play, no doubt they will have done the same.”

“I’m really looking forward to it, they’re a footballing side and I think it’ll be a good game of football, but there’s no question, we got to go down there and take something from the game, we’ll be looking to win it, if we get a point I’ll regard that as a relatively good result, it’s going to be tough, there’s no question about that”

Cleethorpes Town’s Jack McMenemy and Brody Robertson have scored 16 league goals this season between them and are a potent strike force in this division. Dunston are a good run of form with 4 league wins from their previous 5 and scoring 12 goals in the process.
