Coronavirus and DFC

So there has been confirmation that the first case of this virus has reached Darlington and interestingly enough the last bit of information from the Northern Echo related to DFC and whether it will effect our matches. Whether or not the individual has any association with the club in an official ca...

Re: Telford

A battling win by the sound of it and the type we need to win to keep the pressure on those above. Looking ahead, it is looking more and more likely that our playoff destiny will hinge on Gateshead away, which is effectively the 6 pointer, although the obvious cliché is we now have to treat the last...

Re: Jack lambert

So what are the rules on signing and playing players, is it clubs within a calendar year or is it reset at the end of the season? I assume we are ok signing him again on loan within the same season, even with his loan spell at Blyth? Don't want us falling foul of player ineligibility and I'm not sur...

Wasn't O'Neill on the bench for Boro tonight? ls it strange he was on the pitch pre-match for us on Saturday and then on their bench tonight, can't fathom what's going on with this situation at the moment? :crazy:

Re: Hereford

A good point that halts the slide in form. Honestly, I would’ve taken a point before kick off, and a late equaliser is always nice. Haven’t seen any highlights yet, obviously, but nice to see Omar on the scoresheet. He’s been underused lately imo. Should we not have a bit more ambition than to be s...

Re: Hereford

Agree Holness should be in our starting line-up. There wasn't too much wrong with our midfield trio of Hatfield, Wheatley and Holness earlier in the season, was there? Except we had O'Neill up front. We haven't got anyone to fill that role now. Campbell needs a big lad up there to bring the best ou...

Re: Hereford

A point away at Hereford is a decent result. However, if you are being hypercritical it is probably 2 points dropped in the circumstances of chasing a playoff place. With results of teams around us you have to try and cash in on wins, draws get you nowhere when you are hunting down the top 7. I thin...

Re: Eight games in 29 days.

The significance of winning tonight is that it has bought us a 'free hit' at Chester, I think we now have a buffer to at least 7th even if we lose and accounting for other teams having games in hand... that is the important difference between winning games like tonight and drawing. We are playoff co...

Re: Eight games in 29 days.

Draw your 'difficult' away matches and win at home puts you in a strong position over a season. However, really draws get you nowhere and winning matches creates the big moves. I'd be going to Guiseley and Chester expecting to win, on current form and despite our defence it may be a case of winning ...

Re: Darlington V Gloucester

Not just the delivery of set-pieces but we haven't had enough players to target when throwing it into the box. We may have a bit more presence now with Reid and Martin, sometimes I think because of this we have been reluctant to go direct at times.

On another note, no mention of Gary Martin. Wonder if he'll be available for Gloucester.
Not eligible to play until 2nd January, so Gloucester City onwards although how he is going to get into the squad at the moment is another matter!

Re: Darlington V Spennymoor

The difference with Campbell now is that he isn't the only threat. Reid/Martin if he signs, are going to not only take the pressure off him but free him centrally to find the space to work these openings and with his finishing abilities he will score goals. We have seen this in the last two matches,...

Altrincham seem to have a hoodoo over York City, knocked them out of the FA Cup and Trophy both times 1-0 away from home too. Also not many North East teams are left in it looking at the results from yesterday. So hopefully a lower league opposition at home and the draw is live on TalkSport2 at 1245...
