WHITLEY Bay manager Ian Chandler has called on the club's supporters to reproduce the atmosphere which helped them almost pull off the most unlikely of comebacks against Lowestoft in the FA Vase semi-finals last year.

With Newcastle United not in action tomorrow due to international fixtures, a bumper crowd of up to 3,000 is expected at Hillheads and the Whitley boss is hoping his crowd can once again play the role of the proverbial 12th man.

Chandler said: “There seems to be more going on, more of an atmosphere around the ground and everyone is getting behind us. We want the same this Saturday and for as many people as possible to get down to Hillheads and support us.”
