Darlington make two changes for this evening’s game at home to Billingham Synthonia which sees keeper Jack Norton returning to the side.

He replaces Craig Turns who is unavailable while Adam Nicholls drops to the bench as Chris Emms.

In goal for Synners is Josh Moody who was in Darlington’s youth team.
The sides met last month at Central Avenue when the hosts led 1-0 at half-time, but a second half fightback secured a 4-1 win for Darlington.

Since that game, Synners have won all four of their league and cup matches, scoring 13 goals in the process.

Darlington are bidding to take their advantage at the top of the Ebac Northern League back to seven points. It was cut to four last night when Spennymoor Town beat Norton 2-0.
