This evening's friendly between Darlington and Sunderland has been abandoned due to unplayable conditions.

The match, earmarked as a farewell game for Quakers striker Steven Johnson who is leaving the club, did not reach half-time at Heritage Park.

High winds and heavy rain affected the fixture with the referee calling a halt to play after 35 minutes.

Darlington were 1-0 ahead at the time thanks to a goal by Amar Purewal.
