Matlock Preview

The Gladiators make the long trip from Derbyshire on Saturday looking for victory after twice not being able to beat the Tynesiders this season. A 2-1 defeat in the FA Trophy in November at the hands of Gateshead followed the 1-1 draw in the league in September.

On Bank Holiday Matlock suffered a 3-1 defeat away to Hednesford, with Simon Barraclough grabbing Matlock Towns only goal. Barraclough also got on the score sheet with two goals in the good Friday match at home to Buxton which they won 3-0.

Barraclough will be wanting to add to his 3 goals from last weekend and Gateshead will have to be on guard for this fox in the box.
As his goal against Leek Town in January shows.

The Heed currently has three players in double figures in the goal charts this season, those players being Graeme Armstrong, Davie Southern and Jamie Harwood.

Knocking on the door of double figures for the heed this season are another three players who all have nine goals, Wayne Phillips, Phil Cave and Super Steve Salvin (pictured).
Could we have 4 or 5, maybe even 6 player with double figures on Saturday evening?????
