Consett went top of the ENL last night with a 4-3 win at Stockton to preserve their unbeaten record.

Freddie Woodhouse put Stockton ahead from close range after 5 minutes from a James Risbrough cross, but Michael Sweet broke clear and levelled for Stockton on the half hour.

Sweet set up Michael Mackay to fire Consett into the lead on the hour, but Nathan Mulligan equalised from the penalty spot.

However, Sweet restored Consett’s lead with a low shot, but Stockton levelled again on 80 minutes through Adam Nicholson from a corner.

But Consett won it with a minute left with a 25 yarder by Aksel Juul
