Darlington manager Martin Gray says that Quakers must approach Saturday's derby game at Harrogate with the right mindset.
He spoke to the Darlington website ahead of the game, you can listen to the interview here
Darlington look to build on impressive home results, as we make the trip to nearby Harrogate Town. We are unbeaten in seven league games and are yet to face defeat on the road in the Vanarama National North despite exiting the FA Cup at Lancaster City.
Leon Scott is now available for selection and he featured alongside Jordan Watson and Tom Davie in a youthful side that lost 3-0 to Stockton Town in the Durham County Cup on Wednesday night.
Our latest stats according to the Stalybridge website are here:
A large number of Darlington fans are expected to make the short trip down the A1, and they are urged to allow plenty of time for the journey, to find a car parking space, and to enter the ground. Darlington fans will be segregated, but the game is not all ticket.
Harrogate currently sit sixth in the league table having lost their last two league games. Last Saturday they led at league leaders AFC Fylde, but fell to a 2-1 defeat. They then suffered their first home defeat of the season in midweek, a 2-0 loss to Kidderminster Harriers.
Their latest stats according to the Stalybridge website are:
Last season Harrogate finished fourth in the league table, only losing to Fylde in the play-off semi-finals. They were founding members of the Conference North in 2004 and have stayed at this level ever since.
Elsewhere in the league leaders Fylde travel to mid-table Tamworth.
Kick off on Saturday is 3:00pm, updates on the game will be made from the club's Facebook, Twitter, Mobile App (sponsored by Tempest Jones) and Website. Live Commentary will be broadcast from Darlo Fans Radio (sponsored by Tempest Jones) at 2:50pm
