Shildon could include striker Glen Robson in their starting line up when they play Marske United in the Brooks Mileson League Cup at Dean Street tonight.

The former Durham and Blyth striker has been out on loan at Stokesley for the last two months, and scored twice in the second division champions’ surprise win over Spennymoor at the weekend.

And now that he has appeared to have regained his sharpness, Shildon boss Gary Forrest could put him in from the start against Second Division Marske.

Defender Darren Hollingsworth will be the only absentee for Shildon, while Marske will be without cuptied winger Karl Charlton and have an injury doubt over defender Mark Taylor.

West Auckland can set up another potential meeting with Spennymoor if they can beat Bedlington in the Brooks Mileson League Cup tonight.

Moors and West have already played each other three times this season – in the league, FA Vase and Durham Challenge Cup – but West face a big obstacle in Bedlington while Moors must overcome Newton Aycliffe.

West manager Peter Dixon will have a full squad to choose from.

Stokesley and Billingham Synthonia face each other for the second time in a week, the two sides having met in a goalless draw last week.

Stokesley will be without striker Glen Robson, who has returned to Shildon, while Synners are without keeper Josh Moody so Chris Porter will step in, but new signing Lewis McArdle will play.

League leaders Consett are at home to West Allotment, whom they beat in the league three weeks ago, and will choose from a squad of 21.

Northallerton are at Newcastle Benfield, who have just transferred striker John Campbell to Darlington. Northallerton manager Mark Fanning will be without striker Matthew Coad and midfielder Martin Butterworth, but defender Craig Winter returns.

In the league, Norton can go level with Bedlington on points but with a weaker goal difference if they can beat Penrith at Station Road. Norton defender Craig Bishop is struggling with an injury.
