Wouldn't be surprised if Hughes started.

Team: Maddison, Trotman, Muggleton, Smith, Hughes, Galbraith, Elliott, Palmer, Ainge, Thompson, Nicholson,

Subs: O'Hanlon, Wheatley, Henshall, Saunders, Kneeshaw

I presume Kokolo has gone back - seemed to be in and out of the side, maybe not ready for the rough and ready of the League

Sounded like a proper dodgy pen to win it but Blyth used all their luck up at BM so fuck em.

Big win. It gives us some more daylight between where we are and the bottom 3, also leaves us with the outside chance of the playoffs...if we can earn more of these sorts of wins!

Sounded like the type of win we’ve been craving for all season. A proper team performance. We certainly appear to have turned a corner.

Great result, defence was awesome today with Galbraith my man of the match. Great to see Hughesy back and Muggleton had a solid debut. A proper team performance and a very valuable three points on the board.

Thought we have played better recently but not got the results, whilst today we were dogged enough and just about deserved the 1-0 win.

Smith I thought was excellent, the amount of times he works to support Trotman with those coming down the right hand side. Thought Galbraith started poor and got booked early on but was very good after that and especially 2nd half.

Reasonable performance from Muggleton considering some of the comments from Chesterfield/York City fans. Thought not having Saunders on resulted in Thompson and Nicholson having to do the running of three players, Ainge I think is going to get stick constantly in a 5-3-2, he has to slow it down or won't get into the box.

Thought Blyth were poor and they will finish mid-table not bothering the play off spots, to be honest this league isn't that great really. We need to keep picking up points and get ourselves comfortably into mid-table/top12.

First game in a while for me. Positive performance as a defensive unit, impressed with Smith. Must have had some Blyth supporters stood behind us as numerous of our players were s*** apparently?

Why was that goal chalked off? Nobody seemed to see a foul except the one who counted.

Good, solid performance. We have improved enormously since that depressing slide. We can attack with pace but importantly have some real backbone now when we have to defend.

Thought all the players put in a shift, Blyth use there wingers well and run for each other off the ball so they always have someone to pass to, but our players covered well. We were muscled out of balls often, (some of the players need some gym weight work I would say). They were certainly covering Nicholson strongly when he was running with the ball. We had a few chances early on before the penalty, (was not sure about the penalty from where I was stood, but also thought we had a shout for hand ball), with scrambles in the box, and we limited Blyth to few chances.
Don't think the linesman was happy with us Darlo fans as he used a few choice words in response to some of the comments.

Excellent win in the end.

The disallowed goal looked ok from where I was, but one of their players was on the ground for some time so must have been something off the ball as don't think that player touched the ball, but whistle was blown before the ball was put in the net,(good strike of the ball as well).

There player were down clutching his calf then as soon as the ball broke to our attacker(Not sure who is was) he tried to catch him but obviously could not he went down in a heap and we scored... BIZZARE to say the least

Very strange decision,s from the referee to day, booked darlington player's for the minimal contact but allowed blyth to bully and elbow Nicholson several times forcing him to the ground and no cards showed, then disallowed a perfectly good goal, for no apparent reason other than darlington scored it, Bradley fewster deliberately dived in Darlington penalty area referee played on indicating no foul, and does nothing about it, at the very least he should have been carded. Strange decisions?????, was he on something, certainly not on his game. Poor officiating today.

I'm certain it was the same linesman who gave Styche offside when he scored in the home game against Blyth. I was stood right behind him when he made the decision and I know for a fact he was wrong yet he kept making sarcastic comments back to the fans having a pop at him.
How he thought the foul on Muggleton wasnt a foul was unbelievable, he was caught well after the ball had gone!

They were brilliant considering the windy conditions! I can certainly see them getting us a few goals this season.

It seemed like we effectively had a corner when we won throw-ins anywhere near the final third.

Nicho goes down a bit easy to be fair , take off your rose tinted glasses... By the way I like him as a player but feel he is a bit lightweight , I'm not slagging the lad as I feel he has been the most consistent player this season

Brilliant performance today by the whole team. Very hard and perhaps unfair to pick a MOTM, but I thought Trotman was superb. As others have said this was a great and perhaps unexpected result. Great following from Darlo as per usual.

Great win and a big 3 points as I was starting to nervously look towards the bottom 3 again. I said a few weeks ago that we needed another 4 wins, that's our first since then and it's looking more likely that another 9 points should see us out of reach for the current bottom 3 to catch. The sooner we get these wins the better as I think it's important that we still have an outside chance of the play offs going into April to keep crowds up although I concede it's unlikely we will make the points difference up to get in them, it will be nice to still be playing for something other than pride for the last 5 or 6 games.
Made a couple of big decisions today did TW in keeping the shape despite clearly looking at going 4-4-2 through the week and his decision to put Hughes straight in, both have worked out for him and he takes some stick, rightly so at times but it's only right he should be praised when he does get it right. Also nice to dig out a result, always feel that we have to play near to the top of our game to pick up a win but that was just as pleasing yesterday. Onwards and upwards.

One of his best performances of the season, great energy up and down the right hand side, Smith will be some player and Tez and Hughes were as solid as a rock.Wouldn't mind that defence for next season.

I wonder what the chances are of us signing Smith in the summer, he’s out of contract at the end of the season.
