New signing Adam Mitchell makes his first appearance at Heritage Park in the Darlington side that faces Wakefield this evening.

The winger joined last week from Sunderland and impressed in Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Prescot Cables.

Fellow new signing Ian Ward, a striker who has joined from Durham City, is on the bench.

There are two changes to the Quakers side with David Dowson and Dale Hopson returning, with Stephen Harrison and Nathan Fisher making way, with only the latter on the bench.

Heavy rainfall before the game has left the Heritage Park pitch sodden but there is no standing water.
