ALUN ARMSTRONG is mulling over potential changes to his starting XI, despite winning in style last weekend.

Darlington won 2-1 at AFC Telford with a performance he believes was one of the team’s best this season.

Armstrong’s side, on the verge of the play-off positions, now have two matches in four days, at home to Farsley Celtic tomorrow and away to Boston United on Tuesday, and he is weighing up alterations to his team.

He explained: “We’ve had a couple of niggles this week after playing on that heavy pitch at Telford, so a few of them just had a conditioning session with the fitness coach on Tuesday.

“Alex Storey has a hernia problem, so we’ve got to manage him. Michael Liddle’s groin/hip was a little bit sore. Louis Laing rolled his ankle at Telford, so he had a rest on Tuesday.

“Omar Holness has been away. He’s gone to America to get his green card renewed, so hopefully he gets back in time for Saturday, and Thommo is on nights this week, so we were down to the bare bones on Tuesday. I only had 12 outfield players training.”

Having been in and out of the side in recent months, Thompson is hoping to start back-to-back league games for the first time since December.

But Armstrong added: “It’s a tough one with Thommo – he gets back in the team and does well, but then he misses training because of work. It is one I’ll have to look at it.

“We’re playing Saturday-Tuesday, so you can freshen things up for the midweek game if needed.

“I’m reluctant to change things after such a good performance, but the worry is can we repeat it – Omar travelling to America and back in the same week and Thommo being on night shift is not ideal preparation - but we’ve got more than capable players available to take their place.”

Meanwhile, Liam Connell’s loan from South Shields has been terminated by mutual agreement.

The goalkeeper made 13 appearances after arriving as cover when Chris Elliott was injured, and made his mark early on by saving a penalty in the FA Cup win at Tamworth.
