Carl Winchester grabbed the game’s only goal on 64 minutes and it was enough to confirm the win for the North East club.

Aaron will aim for more game time on Tuesday evening when the side travel to Northampton Town in the Carabao Cup.

There was defeat for Burton Albion, the first of their league campaign, at the weekend as they were beaten 3-0 by League One new boys Cambridge United.

All of the goals came in the second half through Sam Smith as well as two own goals from Tom Hamer in what was a tough day at the Abbey stadium for Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side. Ellery Balcombe remained on the bench for The Brewers for the fixture.

Burton now set their sights on a match at home to Cheltenham Town on Friday as they aim to return to winning ways.
