Darlington are the visitors for Saturday’s National League North fixture, a second successive home game after the midweek re-arranged match against North Ferriby that Saints won comfortably by 3-0.

After Saturday’s 500 mile round trip to Blyth, Saints take on North Ferriby United on Tuesday evening (ko: 7.45pm) at St James Park in a re-arranged league fixture as Kevin Wilkin’s side strives to close the gap at the top where just two points separate faltering Salford City and resurgent second placed Harrogate Town.

After last Saturday’s spectacular win against National League side Sutton United in the FA Trophy to set up a quarter-final tie at Stockport County on 24 February and Tuesday night’s win at Peterborough Sports to book a Hillier Senior Cup Final place at Sixfields on 10 April against Kettering, Saints are back in National League North action at the weekend.

After Saturday’s win against league leaders Salford City, Saints enter the FA Trophy fray again with the visit of National League side Sutton United. This will be the first time the teams have met.

National League North leaders Salford City are next up at St James Park on Saturday 27 January.

Following Tuesday evening’s FA Trophy replay win at Barrow it’s back to National League North action on Saturday with a trip to Tamworth’s artificial turf.

Saturday’s goal-less FA Trophy draw at St James Park means the two sides meet again at Barrow’s Holker Street ground on Tuesday evening with a 7.45pm kick-off. This second round tie will be settled on the night with extra time if needed and then penalties.  The third round draw is due to be made on Monday so the teams will know who their opponents will be in the next round of 16.
