Colin Todd has made three changes for this evening's home game with Crewe, and one of those is new striker Jordan Cook.

He signed today on loan from Sunderland the striker goes straight into the line-up at The Northern Echo Darlington Arena, as does Nathan Porritt who joined yesterday from Middlesbrough.

Defender Matt Plummer is handed a shock start as captain Steve Foster is surprisingly not in the squad, and neither is Mark Convery.

With Foster not in the squad, Paul Arnison has been handed the captain's armband.

Rikki Bains, who joined yesterday, is on the bench as are Chris Lumsdon and Jeff Smith who had both started all three of Quakers' games this season.
