Match Preview: South Shields Vs Lancaster City

Lancaster City hope to continue their unbeaten run in both league and cup when they take on top of the table South Shields.

The Dolly Blues are seven games unbeaten, winning six of those with their only draw coming against Warrington Town.

Meanwhile, South Shields sit top of the Northern Premier League, and they themselves went on a seven game winning run.

If Mark Fells side can make it eight games unbeaten they have a chance to go second in the league if other results go their way.

City came away 1-0 victors in their last game against Witton Albion in the FA Trophy and will face Stourbridge in the next round.

Lancaster have scored the most goals so far this season with 28, David Norris and Paul Dawson have 14 goals between them.
This attacking football is something City will want to utilize well against the most defensive team in the Northern Premier League with South Shields conceding just 9 times three of those came in a 3-1 loss against Witton Albion.
