Darlington Vs Barnet, Sat 20 Mar 2010

Next Story

Darlington's new signing Chris Moore could make his full debut in the home clash with Barnet.

The 26-year-old winger, signed last week from Northern League side Whitley Bay, was a half-time substitute in last week's defeat at Northampton.

Manager Steve Staunton has no new injury or suspension worries but is still without defensive pair Stuart Giddings (groin) and Richie Byrne (hamstring).

Veteran striker Noel Whelan (hamstring) came through a practice match this week unscathed but is not yet ready to return while long-term absentees Mark Bower (ankle) and Chris Lumsdon (knee) are still out.

The Quakers have gone eight matches without a win, having last tasted victory on February 6 against Rotherham, and appear destined for relegation with them 18 points adrift of safety.

Barnet will have defender Clovis Kamdjo available.

Centre-half Kamdjo was sent off with 10 minutes remaining of the 2-1 defeat to Accrington Stanley last weekend for bringing down Billy Kee but the Bees appealed the decision and won.

Kamdjo will continue to play alongside veteran Gary Breen at the heart of the back four as Ian Hendon's side look for a first win in five.

Fellow defender Ismail Yakubu continues to be troubled by his long-standing back problem and 41-year-old striker Paul Furlong is out for another fortnight with his eye condition.

Midfielder David Livermore missed the defeat last weekend with a calf injury but is hoping to be fit.
