Johnston the Colliers’ goal hero
Ashington 1Bishop Auckland 0Callum Johnston was Ashington’s match winner as the Colliers bounced back with a victory against Bishop Auckland at a windswept Woodhorn Lane, writes Brian Bennett.
This was a merited success against a well organised side. With the strong wind they dominated the first half, although Michael Hoganson clipped the crossbar for the visitors.
In the second half Winn struck the crossbar for Bishops before Slater did likewise for Ashington, Johnston fired them in front from the rebound in the 57th minute.
There were further chances at both ends but Colliers held on for the win..
This Saturday Ashington are away to West Auckland.
