DARLINGTON manager Alun Armstrong has signed two players to boost his squad ahead of tomorrow’s home game with Kidderminster.

Armstrong moved into the non-contract market after Tuesday’s defeat at Fylde to sign former Chesterfield striker Levi Amantchi and ex-Leeds midfielder Theo Hudson, and both will be in the squad for the game at Blackwell Meadows as Quakers look for their first league win of the season.

Strikers Adam Campbell and Dan Maguire are both struggling with injuries this afternoon, which prompted the manager to take action.

“Levi had been on trial at Middlesbrough for a month, and they were close to giving him a deal,” said Armstrong.

“I spoke to Craig Liddle about him. He’s a big, tall lad at 6’5” and will give us something different. He had a stint at Blyth last year where it didn’t go so well, but he came into training and was different class. At the moment, we need him to take some of the burden because we’ve only got one fit central striker in Luke Charman, and especially as we’re playing Saturday-Tuesday.

“Theo is a little left-sided winger from Leeds. Big things were expected of him there, so I was surprised that he was released during the summer. He’s got a little bit of pace and trickery in him. I was sent all of his clips, and he’s come in to try and get some games. Hopefully it will work for both parties, and we can get something out of it. I think Theo will be exciting.

“I tried to get Tyrone O’Neill in again from Middlesbrough on loan, but he’s got other options.”

Quakers go into the game on the back of a good performance at Fylde on Tuesday, but they came back pointless because of a late goal.

“I was really pleased with the performance on Tuesday,” added Armstrong. “The frustrating thing was that we didn’t come away with anything, the lads deserved something from the game. There were some very good individual performances.”

Midfielder David Atkinson and striker Jamie Holmes will both be missing because of injury tomorrow.

Quakers are unbeaten against Kidderminster in their last three outings, the last of which was a 1-1 draw at Aggborough in January when Will Hatfield scored with a 30-yarder that was voted Goal of the Season.

Like Quakers, Kidderminster lost on Tuesday night, by 2-1 at home to Chester.

Tomorrow’s game will once again be behind-closed-doors again, but will be streamed live via the club’s Quaker TV.
