Max Kirkham and Stevie Graham are out of the clash and Grant Pressling continues with his recovery from injury, but is unlikely to join the squad.

Jarrow are still awaiting news on Kris Allen and Jordon Mellish and whether they will recover in time for the Coxhoe game.

Jonny Hirst is likely to miss the game, as is Micky Turnbull.

Andy Wilkinson, Kai Elliott, Robbie Coleman, Nathan Bell and Gary Frater all return to the squad having missed last week’s 5-2 Durham Trophy victory over Annfield Plain.

Manager Dave Bell said: “We have new signing Gordon Hutchinson available and he joins the squad for the first time.

“We travel to Coxhoe on the back of a great result and performance last week.

“We will be looking to pick up where we left off last time out.

“We know we need to continue to work hard right throughout the squad to get anything out of the game.

“We look forward to this game against a Coxhoe team, who have had some good results this season and have many strengths.”

Boldon CA entertain Stokesley SC and manager Paul Mossa will have two centre halves available in Jonny Gage and Aaron Burn, who both missed last weekend.

More players are returning to the squad from injury and to have Josh Houghton back fit is a great boost to the team.

However, club captain Jack Lawton is still out with an ankle injury.

South Shields Reserves welcome Ashbrooke Belford House.

Shields Reserves secretary Philip Reay said: “Manager Kevin Bolam hopes to have Gary Crutwell back available and he will have a late fitness test.

“Bolam will be without Ewan Simpson, who acquired an injury last week.

“Nathan Sinclair is currently still two or three weeks away from returning to action.”
