Bridlington Town head to the North East on Saturday in the latest stop on the road to Wembley.

They face Sunderland RCA in the FA Vase second qualifying round, having seen their four-match winning run come to an end last weekend.

Worksop Town won 3-1 at Queensgate in the league, but Brid boss Gary Allanson is backing his troops to bounce back.

He said: “We have to dust ourselves down and pick ourselves up again, as a long trip to Sunderland awaits us.

“It will be a difficult game as always against a Northern League side but after our last few performances we will be confident and positive and if we can have that ruthless streak we will give a good account of ourselves.

“They will want to win the game at the first attempt and not come to us for a replay on a Tuesday night so that will open some gaps for us to exploit with our pace going forward.”

Town won at Penrith in the last round.
