A Ryhope derby between two sides in great form - after losing their opening match of the season by a single goal in the Emirates FA Cup at Ashington, Ryhope Colliery Welfare have been in superb form in the Northern League winning all three of their matches so far against North Shields, Stockton Town and Billingham Synthonia.
RCA have bounced back strongly from the defeat at Marske United with a terrific win against Ashington in the FA Cup last Saturday and a good Northern League victory over newly-promoted Team Northumbria on Tuesday night.
RCA made one change to the side that beat Team Northumbria on Tuesday - Clayton Davis returned to right full back, replacing Luke Richardson.
The two sides lined up as follows:
RCA: Bussey; C Davis; Hodgson; McGuinness; Swansbury (c); Elliott; Charlton; Page; O'Neill; Callen; Cassidy.
RCW: Ball; Turnbull; Cocks; Skidmore; Paxton; Woods; Trewick (c); Home-Jackson; Melvin; Weirs; Nicholson.
