Darlington striker Mor Diop is expected to miss Monday's home clash with Hereford but midfielder Gareth Waite could return to the squad.

Frenchman Diop (hamstring) missed manager Simon Davey's first game in charge as the Quakers secured back-to-back wins for the first time this season with a 2-1 success at Burton.

Meanwhile, Waite has been sidelined due to illness but could return to the substitutes' bench.

Davey is not expected to make any other changes for his second game at the helm, with Curtis Main expected to continue up front alongside Tadgh Purcell.

Long-term absentees Chris Lumsdon (knee), Stuart Giddings (groin), Mark Bower (ankle), Richie Byrne and Noel Whelan (both hamstring) remain sidelined as the Quakers look to maintain their momentum.

Mathieu Manset is the only new injury concern for Hereford.

The striker was forced off in the closing stages of Saturday`s home win over Barnet and Bulls chief Graham Turner will make a late check on his fitness before they travel.

Astrit Ajdarevic made his first appearance for the club against the Bees and he is one of several players who will be hoping to force their way into the starting line-up.

Leon Constantine - Manset`s replacement at Edgar Street - Matt Done, Sam Gwynne and Gavin McCallum are also in the hunt for recalls should Turner opt to freshen up his side for their second game in three days.

Darlington have experienced an upturn in form, winning their last two matches, and Turner told the club`s official website: "I expected that at some time.

"You don`t go all the way through a season without a little run of success, so we`ve got to go there and put them in their place."
