Not looking like a draw will be the outcome tonight. I think I'd have preferred to play Walsall than Solihull & yes I know Walsall aren't in the competition.

Take a bow, Michael Smith :clap:

Hopefully Moors will be done with the cups now for the season after that and want to get out of the Trophy as soon as possible.

Eight years since he played for Darlo. Seems like a lot longer. Anyone know how much we got when we sold him to Charlton? It was undisclosed at the time. transfermarkt.co.uk says 68k but apparently we turned down 80k from Bristol City so can't see why we'd have taken 68.

That is one stonkingly large kick in the nuts for them that easily surpasses our weekend achievement in snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

At least AA won't have needed to go & watch them play, he'll just have watched TV.

The bad news is that Tim Flowers has already said he won't be making wholesale changes because "Darlington are a good side." He says "Under no circumstances will we be taking them lightly." He says we've got good spirit and will have a big following and they are in the Trophy to try to win it. So expect the full first team. Bit of a free hit for us, no-one expects us to do anything so we can just go out and do our thing and hopefully it's a Bescot-type performance rather than a Leamington one.
