Marine Preview

Gateshead travel to Merseyside on National day looking for a Grand performance.

Paul Musselwhite will be looking to take his clean sheet run to five straight games, having kept clean sheets against Kendal Town, Ossett Town, Matlock Town and Prescot Cables. The veteran of over 600 league games may have his best years behind him but had stood tall and brave when needed since arriving from Harrogate Town to help with the Tynesiders promotion drive.

Also in sparkling form is striker Paul Brayson, who has set up three goals in two games. His role as striker has only produced three goals since he signed for the Heed after his release from York City, yet his experience is helping the team get goals through out the team. The former Reading and Cardiff City striker sometimes looks pressured on the ball, but cream always rises to the top, no doubt come Saturday he will be aiming for the back of the net.

Marine sit just outside the Play-offs, six points is all that is separating the Merseyside side team from Play-offs. So you can guarantee Marine will be pushing forward every time they get the ball.

Peter Cumiskey is going to be a big threat, a powerful forward and good in the air. Carl Jones will have his hands full, but is more than capable of keeping him at arms length.
Here is a Peter Cumiskey penalty from last season against Witton Albion.
