On another day we could have won that game. I thought it was telling that at the end of the game, the team got a standing ovation from most of the fans left in the ground. Hopefully we'll get a few of our key players back for this Saturday.
Standing ovation :lol:

Had Alfreton not been leading & comfortable would the game have gone the way it did? I get the feeling we looked like we were in it because they were content to sit on their lead and not take risks. We only created 2 good chances in the game.

I don't like the line that because we were a lot better than a week earlier then that means we were good. It was a pretty ordinary performance I thought and I was quite disappointed with it.
"At a meeting held at the Grammar School on Friday last - Mr Phillip Wood M.A., in the chair - it was resolved to form an Association Football Club for Darlington and neighbourhood. The opinions of those present were so unanimous as to the desirability of this step, that a committee was formed to complete the organisation of the club, and Mr Craven, 17, Garden Street, was appointed secretary pro tem." - The Northern Echo, Monday 23rd July 1883

An ugly, lucky 1-0 win would do on Saturday but given that they are unbeaten, second top, have scored more than us and conceded fewer than half the goals we have i fear we may have to hang on a bit longer to end this long winless home record. Just being realistic like and maybe a bit gloomy as well :(
