HAVING won convincingly at the weekend with a weakened team, Tommy Wright admits he will have to give his team selection some serious thought for the trip to Southport.

After a largely disappointing start to the season, Darlington beat previously unbeaten AFC Telford United 3-0.

While a handful of players of players returned to action following absences, such as Ben O’Hanlon and Joe Wheatley, Wright remained without some who would usually be considered definite starters.

Striker Reece Styche was on international duty - winning two caps for Gibraltar - and returns to the reckoning, while Terry Galbraith (calf) and Simon Ainge (thigh) also hope to play at Southport.

But in their place Quakers won at home for the first time this season and convincingly so, with stand-in centre-back Liam Hughes excelling while Harvey Saunders has now scored twice in three games.

“It’s a nice headache to have and something I’m going to have to think twice about,” admitted Wright.

“I’ve done it before where I’ve stayed loyal to the XI that demolished Brackley and Blyth, but that was the same team that was humped by Kidderminster.

“I’ll have to really weigh up what I want to go with, but we will do what we think is right for the group.

“Me and Whitey will talk all week about it. Saturday’s result doesn’t say sorry for everything else, it’s the start of something. The lads won’t rest on their laurels, it’s day one and let’s get back to being a good team.”
