Darlington Reserves are going for their fifth successive win when they travel to Redcar Athletic in the Wearside League on Saturday.
Quakers have had some excellent results in recent weeks to put them into the top half of the table, but this will be their toughest test for some time against opponents who are third in the table.
Joint manager Mark Fanning said; “We’ve been going so well recently. The lads have played some great football, their passing and movement has been fantastic.
“We had a very good workout in midweek against Guisborough, because we know that Saturday’s game will be hard against one of the leading teams in this league.”
Quakers will definitely be without keeper Carl Robinson, midfielder Ethan Harker and forward Dale Milburn because they’re all on County FA duty, and defender Connor Lane who is suspended after being sent off against South Shields Reserves.
One new signing is included, left sided player Nathan O’Connor from Richmond Town.
The kick off at Redcar is at 2pm, there’ll be a match report on the official website.
