Hebburn play their eighth consecutive away game tomorrow when they travel to Tow Law Town.

It will mean 10 out of their first 14 league games will have been away from home, but boss Scott Oliver has paid tribute to his players despite their position in 14th.

He said: “I was very proud of the players, even in defeat at Billingham Town on Tuesday night. Their second goal came in stoppage time as we were pushing to level the game.

“The game could have gone either way and we created chances all night.

“It’s a tough league this season and despite the challenges we face we will finish in the top half as I can see the team improving and the new lads settling in.

“After Saturday, we will have 18 home games out of 28 league games left and that will give us a big advantage.”

Hebburn hope to have Channon North returning but Kris Summers misses the game through a one match suspension.
