Quakers on their travels to Brackley

Quakers on their travels to Brackley

Can we upset the second placed club?

Darlington are looking for another confidence boost away to Brackley tonight.

Quakers are in good heart after they came back from 2-2 down to draw at Blyth last Saturday, with Luke Charman and Andrew Nelson on target, but their defending left something to be desired in the opening twenty minutes.

Brackley are currently second in the table, unbeaten in their six league games.

Here's what Darlington skipper Will Hatfield thinks of the game:
