Re: Darlington v Banbury 2/03/24

It is a massive game, because we will probably need to win another 5 games this season, and this looks like one of our most winnable matches.

Darlington v Banbury 2/03/24

A win would compete an excellent week for us, if we manage to take 9 points in 8 days that will probably be a pivotal moment in our season. However, you can take nothing for granted in this league, and it will likely be a tough game against opponents who will be equally desperate for the points. Inj...

Re: Away Shirt Vote

I agree regarding No4 it is not enough of a contrast colour wise from our home kit. I voted for No3 for a complete change.

Re: Curzon V Darlington

I have to agree with comments made regarding Toby Lees. He was largely anonymous earlier in the season, but is much improved since SW and TM came in, and I thought he was MoM last night. Also I think it is fair to say that Platt is looking much more like the player we hoped he would be when he first...

Re: Curzon V Darlington

Really good effort tonight. Fully deserved to win and showed plenty of heart and fight. We don’t look like the same team that played a few weeks ago, so plenty of credit to Steve and Terry for making a big difference in just 2 months. Loads more to do but if we can maintain recent standards we reall...

Re: Curzon V Darlington

We can’t defend, so I am sure we will be looking to go forward at every opportunity. A performance like last week at Boston would do, as long as we take some of our chances this time.

Re: Darlington v Buxton

Armstrong looked utterly broken after beck left, and that very plainly seeped into the team. Jacob Blyth flopped, but he spent his whole time with us hearing interviews in which Armstrong implied he wasn't good enough. Whatever Armstrong did before then - and a whole load of it was good to great - ...

Re: Run-in

Talking of injury prone players, I have a memory of Noel Whelan coming on as a sub at the Arena and pulling his hamstring as he ran onto the pitch and had to be taken off straight away. Please tell me I haven’t imagined it and this really happened 🤔

I think we really need to be trying to tie Watson and Mitchell down to be here next season, regardless of which league we are playing in.

I didn't think we were that poor in the first half Pete. Agreed we were the better team and they hadn’t threatened until the bizarre own goal. I thought in the second half,we were just starting to run out of ideas when out of the blue we scored. The timing was vital, as it lifted the players and th...

Re: Darlington v Buxton

Pretty sure that is the first game we have won this season from a losing position. Time to break another hoodoo on Tuesday and win back to back games. It actually feels like we still have a chance of beating the drop, although it is still a big ask.

That's quite a few of us that are worried. I think you are right to be a bit sceptical.

Re: Boston v Darlington 20/02/24

Good effort in the first half, but after the 2nd goal went in around 65 minutes, we just faded tamely away. Unfortunately, the old failings again showed through. A failure to take our chances, and then paying the price for defensive lapses. Surely Curry has to start up front alongside Main. By the t...

H/t 1 nil Boston. We have played well and created some decent chances, unfortunately Nelson has missed a couple of really good opportunities. They have had very few clear chances, the goal conceded was poor. Looked like Siddick should have cleared the ball in the build up.

Having watched the highlights and seen the sendings off again I agree that the first one was the correct decision. It was a long way from the goal, but there was no covering defender and no legitimate attempt to win the ball, so think the referee was brave but made the right call. The second red was...

I think someone posted on another topic that Jacob Hazel is currently injured, and he I noticed he wasn’t in the Boston squad that beat Bishop Stortford on Saturday. Hopefully, then we will be spared the curse of the former striker scoring against us.
