Football: Shields out for revenge.

SOUTH SHIELDS will need to avenge an early-season defeat at Filtrona Park against Guisborough Town when the sides meet for the return fixture in the Arngrove Northern League Second Division tomorrow.

The Mariners' form on Teesside has been good in the last couple of years and after defeating Guisborough they shared the spoils last season.

Secretary Phil Reay said: "We haven't done too badly in games with them, although we need to overturn the 2-1 defeat they inflicted on us earlier in the campaign.

"It is extremely tight at the top and vital we take all three points, but I know it will not be easy."

Reay added that Lee Paul Scroggins and Duncan O'Brien could make the squad.

Scroggins had to be substituted at half-time during last week's defeat at Marske while O'Brien was working.

Defeat at Marske means the Mariners have never won at Mount Pleasant in the last six years, having suffered five defeats and gained one draw.

"Marske is a place where we just cannot pick up a winning result but, hopefully, we'll be back on track at Guisborough tomorrow," added Reay.
