Darlington are again a team struggling near the foot of the table and after their embarrassing defeat at home to non-league Farnborough were becoming a bit of a joke.  In reality their home form had been quite good until then although they may have been drawing too many games.

We'll find they will still be hard to beat.

They also sacked their manager, Tommy Taylor, recently and now have Mick Tait in charge temporarily.  Tuesday night they came back from Oxford with a creditable 1-1 draw and by all accounts a better performance.

They have had no injuries from that game but will be without our old friend Barry Conlon because he's out through suspension.

Bazza seems to have a problem with his balance when he has the ball in front of goal and a defender hovering nearby so he won't be missed.

We'll still be without Drewe Broughton and Scott Stamps for this one but Sean Parrish is now fit again after his hamstring injury and should make the bench.  Hopefully we'll also be seeing a place in the starting line-up for Adie Smith, maybe at the expense of Lee Ayres after his below par displays recently.

The enigma, Abdou Sall, is back in town and it'll be interesting to see what happens with him.  We could really do with some defensive cover though and Brit might bite his tongue and put him back in the squad.

Another enigma, Daire Doyle, has gone to Nuneaton for a month to team up with yet another one, Andy Ducros.

We seem to have more enigma's than Elgar.
