Former Darlington striker John Campbell will make his home debut for league leaders West Auckland against Jarrow Roofing this afternoon.

Campbell was released by Darlington in November and moved to Bedlington, but last week he was made available for transfer and signed for West, just in time to score on his debut against another of his old clubs, Newcastle Benfield, in the 3-1 win on Wednesday night.

West are currently two points clear at the top, and manager Peter Dixon will give defender Andrew Green and striker Elliott Gardner fitness tests.

Roofing, who are third bottom, have transfer listed striker Alex Benjamin, less than two months after signing him from Sunderland RCA. Dave Anderson and Liam Robertson will both return. Midfielders mark Fitzpatrick and Jake Henderson, signed from Tow Law, are in the Roofing squad.

Spennymoor Town want to bounce back from their 4-1 midweek defeat at Ashington, but they will have a tough task at home to Marske United. Moors, who are in fourth place will be without injured defender Jamie Harwood, while Marske, who are unbeaten in nine league games, are at full strength now that midfielder Rob Jones has recovered from illness.

Whitley Bay, who are in second two points behind West, are at home to fifth bottom Penrith and are hoping to stretch their unbeaten run in all competitions to eleven matches. Only defender Craig MacFarlane is missing from Ian Chandler’s squad because of injury.

Sunderland RCA, who are level on points with Whitley Bay, face Consett, and they include two new signings, David Wells and Ian Dixon, both from Bishop Auckland, but striker Mark Davison is missing because of injury.

Consett, who have won their last two matches, will be close to full strength with all of their injured players, apart from Craig Robson, now recovered.

Fifth placed Newton Aycliffe can measure their progress at home to Ashington, who drew 2-2 with them earlier in the season. Striker Warren Byrne and midfielder James Oliver are still missing because of injury, while they have suffered a major blow with the news that defender Mark Peck will be out longer than expected because of injury. Ashington striker Jonny Godsmark is missing because of injury, while another striker, Phil Bell, will have a fitness test.

Second bottom Tow Law are hoping for a change of fortune at home to Newcastle Benfield, and manager Ian Davison gives midfielder Steven Turnbull, signed from Bishop Auckland, his debut, while another midfielder, Andrew Thompson, returns from suspension. Benfield have lost only three away league games this season.

Shildon go to Bedlington for a 2pm kick off, and are without striker Josh Home-Jackson and midfielder Chris McCabe because of suspension, while defender Justin Keegan and midfielder Chris Hughes are both injured.

Bishop Auckland include two new faces in their squad at home to Billingham Town. Defender Adam Robinson has signed after being released by Bradford City, while midfielder Nick Lyons has arrived from Darlington RA. Defender Adam McLane returns after injury. Town, who are fourth bottom, are without striker David Onions, but he is replaced by Craig Norman on his return from injury.

South Shields are at Norton, and they will give a debut to centre half Adam Drysdale, signed from Seaham Red Star, while striker Jonny Wightman returns to the line up. Norton have lost striker Nathan Mulligan to Whitby, while Andy Harbron, Andy Burton, Steve Huggins and Dave Alderson are all unavailable. Craig Gott and James Magowan both return.
