Quakers looking for second straight home win

Darlington are looking for back-to-back home wins against Warrington tonight, and hopefully narrow the gap on the fifth bottom club.

Quakers are currently third from bottom of the table, eight points below Peterborough Sports, and so the points tonight will come in very handy indeed. They won their last home game by 3-2 against Chester.

Josh talked about the Warrington game in his post match interview after the Scunthorpe Trophy defeat:


Team news:

  • Jake Lawlor is out because of a shoulder injury
  • Jonny Ngandu and Andrew Nelson are both suspended
  • Mitch Curry is out because of an elbow injury
  • Midfielder Ben Liddle is out because of an ankle injury -- although he is close to a return
  • Defender Jordan Windass is out with a hamstring injury
