DARLINGTON have added to their squad ahead of tomorrow’s match at Brackley.

Midfielder Jack Lambert has joined on loan for a month from Scunthorpe United.

The 20-year-old suffered an injury at the beginning and has yet to make a senior appearance for Scunthorpe having joined them in the summer.

Last season he was at Dundee but Quakers manager knows him from his time in Middlesbrough’s youth set-up.

“He’s only 20, totally different to what we already have, a clever, technical footballer,” said Armstrong.

“It’s a loan for a month. He was injured at the start of the season and hasn’t been able to force his way in, so I spoke to Russ Wilcox on Wednesday and managed to get him in.”

Armstrong is aware that Lambert is not eligible to play in Wednesday’s FA Cup replay with Walsall.

Only those who were available for the first tie last Saturday can play in the replay at Blackwell Meadows, but first and foremost is a league fixture against a Brackley.

Quakers will be without the suspended Ben Hedley, Michael Liddle remains injured, Osagi Bascome and Justin Donawa are on international duty with Bermuda, plus the three long-term injured: Luke Trotman, David Atkinson and Jamie Holmes.
