Manager Mark Cooper says Tadhg Purcell has played his final game for Darlington, despite the striker being available tomorrow before his one-month loan expires.

The Irishman played three games for Quakers, scoring once, but was an unused substitute for the last two matches and manager Mark Cooper believes he can manage without him against Kidderminster Harriers.

"Tadhg Purcell's loan is up on Saturday, but we won't be using him at the weekend," he said. "He's done okay for us and we thank him for that, and hope he continues his recovery from what was an awful knee injury."

Purcell saw no part of the action during Tuesday's 4-3 win at Stockport County when the front-pairing of Liam Hatch and James Walshaw impressed Cooper with their work-rate.

They will start again tomorrow at The Northern Echo Arena as Quakers bid to continue their revival following an eventful week that included a dreadful defeat to Bath, which was followed by chairman Raj Singh publicly backing Cooper.

The manager added: "You have to stay positive because around the corner there's always a win.

"Luckily enough, we got it with a rip-roaring performance on Tuesday and with a little bit of tweaking here and there and a couple of additions, a couple going in and a couple going out, we'll be even stronger.

"I still think we need one or two players, a bit of quality. It's difficult because they're not cheap and we have to attract them to the area."

One player Cooper has managed to attract is Exodus Geohaghon who will make his home debut tomorrow after making his first start on Tuesday.

Graeme Lee returns after serving a one-match ban which means Jonatan Sanchez-Munoz drops out of the starting XI.

Geohaghon has been brought in due to Ian Miller's absence through injury. The captain undergoes a hernia operation tomorrow that Quakers hope will keep him sidelined for no more than a month, while the player aims to return to training in around ten days.

Paul Arnison also remains out. He sustained an ankle injury last weekend at Bath, though scans have shown that he has not broken a bone.

Meanwhile, tomorrow's visitors to the Arena will not feature former Darlington forward Tommy Wright as he was released on Monday. He made two substitute appearances after joining Kidderminster on a non-contract basis after leaving Quakers.
