Talbot Park plays host to Stockton today in the second Teesside darby for the Acklam men. After a historic win last week Danny Ashton & Chris Walkers will be looking to take that level in to today's game. Stockton for their part will be looking to reestablish their credentials back at the top of the league after two consecutive losses including a narrow defeat by the unbeaten league leaders Consett International. Stockton should be back at full strength after having depleted first choice selections due to work & other commitments.
Team changes are minimal from last week. Nathan Thompson is rested after picking up a knock late in last weeks victory against Middlesbrough so seasoned campaigner Tim Savage comes in to partner Xander Collins at lock.
Nathan Faint has recovered from illness and reinforces the bench along with Danny Moss & Cam Bottomley.
