Ashington FC manager Ian Skinner has described his sides clash against West Allotment Celtic in the quarter final of the Newcastle Flooring Northumberland Senior Cup this evening (February 6), as being a ‘big game’ for the Wansbeck based outfit.
Following their 4-1 defeat against Dunston UTS on Saturday, Skinner said: “We’ll dust ourselves down and prepare properly as we always do. It’s a competition we’ll be taking seriously and although the winners already know that they will face Newcastle United Under 21’s or Bedlington Terriers at home in the semi final, we’ll certainly not be looking past West Allotment. It’s a big game for us and they are a good side. They went to Birtley Town last week and won 3-1 and today they’ve got the same result after travelling to face Redcar Athletic.”
Tonight’s game at Woodhorn Lane has a 7.30pm kick-off.
