Jarrow Roofing head into tonight’s game at Shildon buoyed by an improved squad mentality and the belief that things are finally starting to go their way.

Roofing, who suffered what could only be described as an inconsistent start to the season, looked very comfortable in their 3-2 win over Consett on Saturday.

Manager Richie McLoughlin believes he finally has the blend right within his squad after making a number of changes.

He said: “Our players now have the willingness of wanting to mix and do the job of putting this football club first.

“I did say changes had to be made or a struggle was ahead but after that win, up against a team that got stuck into us and tried to spoil our game all day, we stood our ground.”

Shildon, who currently sit in second place in Northern League Division One, are known for their attacking prowess and sit top of the home goalscoring table.

The last time the Roofers travelled to Dean Street, they suffered a 2-1 defeat.

Shildon have won nine of their 12 home games this season, so the Boldon-based club know they will need to use all of their new found team mentality to be in with a chance of bringing something back to the Boldon CA Sports Ground.

The league clash kicks off at 7.30pm.
