Following their first win of the season at FC United of Manchester on Saturday, Durham City hope to take something out of tonight's UniBond League Premier Division game against Whitby Town at the Esh Group Stadium.

A club spokesman said: "Not one of the lads who played on Saturday was over 20 and Connor Winter is just 16. It was a massive effort by a young squad and just reward for their fantastic commitment.

"Strangely enough we thought we might just get something out of the game and the squad revelled in the atmosphere with over 2,000 spectators, most of them expecting a big win for the home side.

"Hopefully, the result will have given the side self belief and a platform for the remainder of the season but it will not be easy against Whitby who are a well organised side on a good run."
