Stocksbridge Park Steels are on the road again with a trip to Newcastle Town coming just five days after exiting the League Cup 2-1 at Division One North leaders South Shields.
Newcastle’s form dipped a little of late with just one win in the last eight outings in all competitions, which came in the shape of a narrow 2-1 home victory against lowly Gresley last month.
Steels have not been at their best performance wise either in recent weeks. Nevertheless Chris Hilton’s side have still managed to grind out the results losing just one of the last seven league outings, which sees them third in the table.
