Sunderland RCA’s final match of the season was a home game against Penrith.
Following successive defeats, RCA bounced back emphatically on Saturday with a superb 5-0 victory at Consett. Penrith, meanwhile, were beaten 4-1 at home to Whitley Bay on Saturday, but had a 2-1 win over Dunston UTS in midweek.
Tonight was the third time that the two sides had met this season: Penrith won the FA Cup Extra Preliminary round match on the opening day of the season courtesy of a single goal. But in December, again at Frenchfields, RCA won 2-0 in the league thanks to an own goal and a Liam McBryde strike.
RCA made four changes to the side that won at Consett on Saturday - Neal Bussey returned in goal with Jonathan Carmichael on the bench, Ross McNab replaced the injured Greg Swansbury, and Jonathan Davis and Brad Wilson replaced Craig Hubbard and James Armstrong in midfield.
The two sides lined up as follows:
RCA: Bussey; Noble; McNab; Larkin (c); McGuinness; Davis; Charlton; Wilson; Butler; Callen; Cassidy.
Penrith: McCombie; Faustino; N Davidson; G Davidson; Bowman; Street; Lawson; Read; Coleman; Gardner; Veitch.
