Stockton Town are on their travels for the third time this week as they make the long trip to Carlton Town.


The Anchors had their unbeaten run which stretched back to October ended on Tuesday night as they went down 3-0 at Newton Aycliffe. Mikey Roberts had a penalty saved in what was a rare off-night.

Prior to that, Stockton had won three straight games and had kept back-to-back clean sheets.

THE OPPOSITION

After flirting with relegation last season, this season they are in the midst of a Play-Off hunt. The Millers currently occupy eighth place with 43 points from 24 points- a healthy position with games in hand on those around them.

They were last in action two weeks ago when they produced their biggest win of the season with a 5-0 hammering of Bridlington Town. Khyle Sargent netted a brace while Micah Jebbison, Alex Hardwick and Niall Hylton were also on target.

Hardwick is the club’s top scorer with nine goals to his name.

PRE-MATCH QUOTES

Speaking to Anchors TV, Manager Michael Dunwell said:

“We knew it was going to be tough with three away games in row. We got the result on Saturday but unfortunately we were beaten tonight (at Newton Aycliffe.)

“We are not going to dwell on this and we haven’t become a poor side overnight. We look forward to the Carlton game and look to get back on a winning run.”
