Quakers looking for third win in four

Darlington are looking for their third win in four matches at Chorley on Tuesday night.

Quakers have beaten Farsley and Chester in their last three matches, with a defeat at Peterborough Sports sandwiched in between.

They're looking for their third away win of the season, and if they win at Chorley, then they could move closer to Rushall Olympic and King's Lynn, who are four and five points respectively above them in the table.

Here's an interview with assistant manager Danny Rose:


Team news:

  • Midfielder Tom Platt returns after suspension
  • Mitch Curry is out because of an arm injury
  • Midfielder Ben Liddle is out because of an ankle injury
  • Defender Jordan Windass is out with a hamstring injury
