Quakers aim to end home games in style

Atkinsons coaches

On Saturday we face Telford United in our final home match of the season at Blackwell Meadows.

Last Saturday we beat FC United of Manchester 4-2 to make it three wins in a row, a run which we look to continue before we head to Salford City on the last day of the season.

We currently sit fourth in the league table, with our appeal having been made to the FA this week to allow us to compete in the end season play-offs.  We need one more goal to reach a half century in home league games this season.

Our last six matches:

Telford are six points ahead of Worcester City and Gainsborough Trinity with two games left, so a point against us would guarantee their status in the division for another season.

Our meeting earlier this season was a frustrating afternoon as Pete Jameson was sent off in a 2-0 defeat in November. It was also a return to Telford on that occasion for Stephen Thompson, who spent two months on loan there earlier in his career from Port Vale.

The last time we met, thanks to Kev’s highlights:

Telford’s last six results

The two teams met in the 2011/12 season when both sides were struggling in the Conference Premier. Goals from Drew Broughton, Ryan Bowman and Danny Lambert earned the Quakers a 3-3 draw. The result helped Telford to a crucial point as they finished in 20th place one place above the drop zone.

The sides also met on the way to two famous triumphs for the Quakers. In 2011 Darlington won 3-0 at Telford on the way to winning the FA Trophy and in April 1990 the side won 1-0 in the Conference, as the side would go on to seal the league title.

Kick off on Saturday night is 3:00pm, updates on the game will be made from the club’s Facebook, Twitter, Mobile App and Website. Live Commentary will be broadcast from Darlo Fans Radio at 2:50pm . Darlo Fans Radio and the mobile app are kindly sponsored by Tempest Jones
