DARLINGTON are looking for back-to-back away wins when they go to Peterborough Sports tomorrow evening.

Quakers picked up only their second league win of the season at Farsley on Saturday to put them level on points at the bottom with Gloucester with a slightly worse goal difference.

Saturday’s win at the Citadel has given them a much-needed confidence boost, and manager Josh Gowling said: “We have to go to Peterborough, do the same as we did on Saturday at Farsley, and get the three points, minimum a point.

“I understand the hurt and pain because of five games without a win before Saturday, but we’re a work in progress and we’ll keep developing.

“We’re trying to improve the best we can, and get into a position in which we’re looking up, and not down. It’s a long process for me with the players, as well as the players with me. These players care, and they want to get the club into a better position.”

There were several pluses in Saturday’s performance, such as the switch to four at the back which caught Farsley by surprise.

“I think Farsley thought that we might go 3-5-2 as we have been recently, and tried to match us up in midfield," said Gowling. "It was an easy transition for us, and going three up top enabled us to put pressure on their backline, which paid off.”

Midfielder Will Hatfield scored Darlington's second goal at the weekend, and pointed out: “This is just the start, we’ve got to kick on from here.

“It’s a nice feeling to win a game, and we want more of this. We won’t stop working, we’re still bottom of the table and there’s lots to do.”

Quakers will be missing Ben Liddle, Mitch Curry and Jordan Windass tomorrow, while skipper Tom Platt plays his last game before suspension.

Peterborough are unbeaten in their last five matches, a run which has taken them to 18th in the table, eight points ahead of Quakers. They recently signed Kaine Felix from Darlington, but he’s been missing because of injury recently, and may be absent again tomorrow.

This will be Quakers first visit to Peterborough – their game last season was switched to Kettering, where Quakers won 1-0.
