Here are all the stats for Saturday’s home game against Nuneaton
We host bottom of the table Nuneaton Borough on Saturday looking to end our run of six games without a win in all competitions, and our first in five league matches against Nuneaton.
Last weekend's 3-1 defeat at Chester leaves us 17th in the table three points ahead of the relegation zone.
Tommy Wright's former team head to Blackwell Meadows cut adrift at the bottom having had problems on and off the field this season. Currently they have not won in ten games losing seven of them.
Despite their struggles Dior Angus possesses a goal threat for them having scored seven times so far this campaign.
Our last meeting in April saw the two teams draw a blank with the game ending 0-0.
Darlington manager Tommy Wright will include new signing Williams Kokolo, a left winger/left back signed from Sunderland.
Nuneaton changed their manager for the second time in a fortnight during the week. Nicky Eaden left a fortnight ago, Lee Fowler departed on Thursday, and he’s been replaced by former Barwell boss Jimmy Ginnelly.
And on Saturday, you’ll be able to bet on the game, thanks to our new partnership with FansBet.
