Darlington travel to Mickleover on Saturday as they look to return to winning ways. Last Saturday they lost at home to Marine 1-0. The visitors scored the only goal of the game in the second half from the penalty spot.

The Quakers will be missing Chris Hunter for Saturday’s fixture, as he serves the first of a three game suspension following a red card in September. Alan White will be available for selection after his red card against Marine. The veteran defender is currently set to face a four game ban.

Mickleover are currently in 11th place in the league table, five points behind Darlington. They lost their last outing away to Sutton Coldfield Town on Tuesday night 2-0. Despite this they have won four of their last seven league fixtures. They have a good record at home in the league so far, winning four and losing two games.

Last year Mickleover won the Evo-Stik Division One South, to gain promotion to the Premier Division after finishing the campaign with an impressive 98 points.

Manager Martin Gray said; "Mickleover have had a really good start to the season, so it will be a tough game. But on the other hand, our away form hasn't been too bad, and we're looking forward to a good response after last weekend's defeat."

Kick-off at Mickleover on Saturday is 3pm.
