A last minute goal from Mark Sheeran helped Bishop Auckland come from behind to win at Kendal in the Presidents Cup on Saturday - but they have an even longer trip to make tonight.

Bishops' reward for their victory is a game at Leek Town in Staffordshire, a situation they were hoping to avoid last week if Kendal had agreed to play on Thursday.

Manager Brian Honour said: "If it was a Saturday, we would have more chance to prepare, because some of the lads might struggle to get time off work."

Honour included former Spennymoor midfielder Steven Bell in the side in Cumbria, and he said: "Steven made a big difference to us."

Kendal took the lead after 70 minutes when Ricky Mercer ran though with Bishops claiming offside and beat Dale Roberts in the Bishops' goal.

Bishops quickly levelled, when Damon Robson burst down the left and fired into the top corner.

And with extra time looming, Kraig Wilkinson crossed for Mark Sheeran to score the winner.

Bishops are now four points adrift at the bottom of the Premier Division after Bridlington beat Gateshead 2-1, James Curtis scoring for Gateshead.

Spennymoor's Presidents Cup tie with Frickley was postponed because of a frozen pitch, and has been re-arranged for Tuesday night.

A question mark still hangs over the future of some players, with several clubs watching the unfolding events at the Brewery Field with keen interest.

Blyth Spartans lost 3-2 at home to Witton Albion in the Presidents Cup, after leading 2-0 at one stage, while Whitby beat Ilkeston 3-1 in the League Cup, Steve Johnson (2) and David McTiernan their scorers.
