Fisher nets on league debut

Darlington and Stockton Times: GOAL: Nathan Fisher put Darlington ahead GOAL: Nathan Fisher put Darlington ahead

Cammell Laird 0 Darlington 2

A goal from Nathan Fisher helped give Darlington a welcome win at Cammell Laird today.

After three league matches without a victory, Quakers won 2-0 on Merseyside with Terry Galbraith sealing victory with an injury-time penalty.

Galbraith also had a hand in the first goal. After a goalless first half, which ended in torrential rain, a glancing header by Fisher put Darlington ahead on 53 minutes, the striker reacting to Galbraith’s terrific cross.

And when the otherwise out-of-sorts Stephen Thompson was tripped in the penalty area, Galbraith drilled home.

Also notable today was the composed performance of Curtis Edwards. A week after the young midfielder was picked out for verbal abuse by a Darlington fan following the 0-0 draw at Lancaster, Edwards responded in fine style; excellent on the ball and he never shied away from possession.

Goals: Fisher (53, 0-1), Galbraith pen (90, 0-2)

Bookings: Hunter (59, foul); Young (64, dissent), Lundon (66, foul); White (85, dissent)

Referee: Darren Strain

Good win against strong opposition in very wet conditions, at one of footballs most desolate grounds. Well done to Martin and the whole team, well played.
