Manager Dave Hewson (pictured), keen to follow-up last week’s League win at Thornaby, is not looking back.

“We set the bar in our first two games by playing well, and we didn’t reach that on Saturday in the FA Cup.

“West Allotment Celtic are a good side but we still managed to create a number of chances, and will take that on board.

“This season we are concentrating on how we perform, and what we are capable of, and not as much on the opposition.

“I’ve had a report on Ryhope, but we are only two games in and this looks a very strong Northern League where clubs are capable of beating the others on their day.

“We know that so again it will be all about ourselves, how we shape-up in the game,” said Hewson.

Two players who are not available through work for every game are in the squad tonight – central defender Kyle May and forward Kingsley Grandison.

May played and scored in the 2-1win at Thornaby last Wednesday when Penrith came from behind, conceding a very early goal.

Grandison, who spent seven years with Manchester City as a youth player, played alongside May at Workington in the NPL.

Sunderland Ryhope have only played  two games so far. After  losing 3-2 in the FA Cup at Consett they drew 1-1 in the League at Sunderland RCA.
