Shildon increased the misery on Guisborough Town, the Ebac Northern League First Division’s bottom club, with a 4-2 win at the King George on Wednesday night.

Guisborough took the lead on 9 minutes when a shot by Steve Roberts was blocked and Anthony Hume followed up and scored.

Shildon levelled when Matty Robson’s penalty was pushed on to the bar by the Guisborough keeper Jordan Nixon, but Robson scored from the rebound.

The in-form Lewis Wing made it 2-1 with a long-range shot, then he fired the third into the top corner.

Robson was then dismissed for a last-man foul, but that didn’t deter Shildon who went 4-1 up on the hour-mark with a curler by Wing.

Tom Bligh pulled a goal back with a deflected shot from the edge of the box.

Morpeth Town beat Sunderland RCA 3-2 at Craik Park to stay fourth.

Stephen Callen put RCA into the lead with a header, but Keith Graydon equalised from the spot just on half-time.

Denver Morris nodded Morpeth into the lead, then Marc Walton made it 3-1.

Colin Larkin pulled one back for RCA from the spot.
