This will be a tough game, excellent result for them at the weekend beating table topping Chorley . Can we nick something?
Going down for this one, what’s parking like? anyone.

Car park is signposted off Cemetery Road and parking charges may apply. There is plenty of street parking from what I recollect last year.

Away ground guide:
Leave the M62 at Junction 26 and take the M606 towards Bradford. Just before the end of the M606 take the left hand slip road signposted Ring Road West A6177. At the top of the slip road you will reach a roundabout at which you take the second exit towards Halifax (A6036). You will pass Odsal Stadium on your left and at the next roundabout take the 3rd exit continuing on the A6036 towards Halifax. Horsfall Stadium is signposted from this roundabout. After one mile and immediately before the Childrens Nursery, turn a sharp left into Cemetery Road. The stadium entrance is down on the left. There is a car park at the stadium which is free, otherwise there is street parking available along Cemetery Road.

Any news on Elliott? Seems to be one of those players that you never notice until he isn't there. Keeps possession well and the midfield solid, so would be sorely missed tonight. We need to keep Beesley tightly marked and take any half chances that come our way. Hope we keep a clean sheet at least.

Elliott having a fitness test tonight apparently.

If we go there & grab anything - I'll be happy. Clearly a tough place to go. Look at Chorley, Boston, Brackley, Spennymoor & Stockport who failed to get much, if anything.

I can't wait to get down there after work. Hoping we take a good 300/400.

I live down here and support Darlo. I'm going.
Cemetary Road is long and plenty of room to park. If you want a quick get away though it is wise to park nearer top of road and facing up the road back towards Halifax Road.

Should be an interesting game this evening.

Bradford Park Avenue are having a great season having brought Chorleys unbeaten run to an end and having already beaten Brackley, Boston and Spennymoor this season. On what I would imagine is a limited budget and with the disappointment of losing Boyes to Spennymoor late in pre season, Mark Bower has picked up from last season and done another impressive job thus far.

It must be typical darlo that of our record this season 3 of our 4 wins have come against current members of the top 7 (Brackley, Boston and Telford) the other coming against FCUM. It certainly seems that we've been upping our game against the top sides. We can certainly give anyone in this league a game especially if we play like in the first half v Leamington. Just need to be a bit more clinical infront of goal.

Big blow if Elliott doesn't make it through his fitness test for tonight's game. He adds balance to our midfield, we don't have another player who can sit and let Wheatley and Nicholson drive on and play. Could be something we look to the loan market to rectify. Not sure if any of the local full time clubs have a CM in that style that needs some match fitness and game time.

If possible I'd stick with the team that played so well in the first half v Leamington. (Elliott's fitness test permitting).

--------------------------- Maddison -----------------------------

--------- Trotman ---- Hughes --- Galbraith -------------
Thompson ------------------------------------------- Henshall

--------- Wheatley --- Nicholson --- Elliott -------------

------------------- Saunders ------- Aigne --------------------

Subs: Syers, J Burn, Hall, Yth, Glover.

Zac Hemmings in on loan from Boro to replace Maddison who has a hip injury. Apparently he was one of the two goal keepers we were talking to championship clubs about before signing Maddison permanently.

Month loan. Here's hoping he's anything as good as Pears was last year.

1-0 Darlo in the second minute. Thompson steals the ball away on the halfway line, carries the ball towards the box and squares to Nicholson who finds the top corner from 20 yards.

2-1 Oli Johnson pulls one back. Sounds like an open game end to end, more goals in this game.

Going forward, especially on the break, we look dangerous at every opportunity. We blew them away in the first 20 mins.

They’re repeatedly overlapping down our right hand side and Thommo is struggling to track their full back.

Whitey likes 3 at the back but we have not got the midfielders to accommodate this system....far too attack minded.Can the pair of them not see that, stands out like a sore thumb.We are continuing to throw points away ,far too fragile in midfield.

Chucked away a 2 goal lead and missed a penalty.... FFS.

I know it's not over, but seriously... they find new ways.

The whole point of 3 at the back (5 when the wingbacks are defending) is so the midfielders can have a bit more freedom to get forward!

End of the day 3 at the back means an extra centre back.

I remember one of our best teams (conference winning team) played 3-5-2 with Corner, Willis and Smith as centre backs - the midfielders were very attacking, particularly Toman who was a goalscorer (like Nicholson)

This is the time you need players on bench who can change the game
