This weekend we travel to Boston United after we suffered our first postponement of the season last weekend at home to Altrincham. Results elsewhere meant we slipped to eighth place in the league table but we are still just four points off a play off place, with most of the teams in the bottom half of the table still to play (writes Simon Hahn)
Our opponents this weekend are 13th place Boston United. The Pilgrims picked up a very impressive result on Tuesday night, as they beat fourth place Chorley 3-1 after coming from a goal behind. They have won five of their fourteen home games so far in the league.
We met back in August in what was our first home game of the season at Heritage Park, with ourselves running out comfortable 4-1 winners.
Boston’s last six results: WLLWLW
Darlington’s last six results: DLDWLD
Liam Marrs signed from Boston for Darlington last summer, having reached the playoffs with the Pilgrims last season.
He is not the only player to move between the two sides, Julian Joachim made the switch for a club record fee, £100,000 and went onto play for the Quakers 76 times when both clubs were in the Football League.
