Darlington travel to fellow Evo-Stik Premier side Frickley Athletic tonight in the League Cup.
The Quakers will be hoping to bounce back from defeat at Barwell in the league at the weekend.
In the previous round Darlington beat neighbours Blyth Spartans, 2-1, thanks to goals from Wilson Kneeshaw and Jordan Lee.
In Frickley's previous tie they overcame Grantham Town 2-0. At the weekend they drew 1-1 in the league away to Hyde United.
The sides played each other in August at Heritage Park when the Quakers were able to come away with a 3-0 victory thanks to goals from Tom Portas, Nathan Cartman and Kevin Burgess.
Martin Gray is expected to make changes from the side which played at the weekend. He is almost certain to rest the regular players with Saturday's league game against Rushall Olympic in mind, and include some of the youngsters who did so well against Blyth in the last round.
According to league rules, Quakers must have at least eight "established" players in their squad.
Kick-off at Frickley on Tuesday night is 19:45.
