Hope he steadies the ship and chips in with a goal or two.

Darlington have today signed right sided player Alex Wollerton on loan from Leeds United for a month.

Alex, 19, had a two year scholarship at Leeds before signing a professional contract in June last year. He has experience with Leeds’ Under 18 and Under 23 sides.

We would like to thank Leeds for loaning us Alex, and we’d like to wish Alex all the best during his stay with us.

Watched the YouTube interview he comes across as confident, not arrogant. Look forward to seeing him play on Saturday.

Right-sided player from Leeds. That's Thommo's place. Or I wonder in it means right-centre midfield?

Not sure either of them will go right into the team, but good. Nice to see us being proactive. I hope there's an option to extent the loan if it works out well also.

Bit of company for Kokolo on his travels. Hopefully the pair have played a bit at SAFC already so know how to link up. Add the lad from Leeds (in the mould of Bremner or Giles?) and it may be the turning point of our season, fingers crossed :thumbup:

Yep Tommo hasn't been his normal model of consistency this season. Drifts out of games too much for my liking.

I think this has got something to with the chopping and changing formations his actual role in said formation and tactics which at times are challenging to understand, so hopefully with these new additions he can get back to his best

Thought the last couple of games he has been more like his old self.Hope Tommy has no thoughts of dropping him, the lad from Leeds should replace Elliott if anyone but certainly not Thommo.

All 3 players should start no question, a couple of new CBS and we are good to go.

It is very welcome to see some new faces to hopefully freshen things up when the team is in a slump, but it does say something about TW's philosophy that all three loan signings to date are attackers. Given the goals we gave away last Saturday it appears that there is still a need to help the midfield/defence with at least one signing, but I'm not confident that the manager will see it this way.

Ultimately we need a goal scorer. That’s what’s going to keep us up.

Will be interesting to see the starting lineup Tommy goes with bearing in mind the 3 attacking signings.If he persists with Trotman and O’Hanlon bombing forward we will just continue to leak goals so a no brainer he should set up with a solid back 4 but you just know this will not happen.

Have to agree. Remember when TW first came in, Thompson was like a born again player, people were raving about him again.

If this guy is a right mid, then happy to switch Thompson to the left.

Play 4-4-2 and get on with a formation everyone knows

And drop Kokolo?

I've just logged back on because I remembered about him! No I wouldn't drop him.

Interesting one now. I have no idea what or who he's going to play. Would assume the loanees will play. Henshall will be available but it sounds like Hughes and Ainge are out

Great start from the lad. Hope he can repeat it at BM and perhaps sign him up to the end of the season, but suspect he is too good for us. Nonetheless, a very welcome addition to the current squad :clap:

just watched the highlights - spot on finishes from Mr Nelson - just shows the quality we have been missing in recent weeks - hopefully Harvey can learn a think or two from this lad.

They think he'll of a lot of this lad so to get him till the end of the season would be great but I very much doubt it..

According to the Sunderland Echo, he's interesting league 1, league 2, SPL and Scottish Championship clubs. He's clearly here for a month to get some fitness before the transfer window opens
