Saturday afternoon will see second placed Darlington 1883 be the visitors at Valley Road. Kick off at Flixton is 3pm.
During this game we are supporting ex-Altrincham F.C player Mark Maddox at our home game versus Darlington tomorrow (Saturday 15th March)Din his battle against Motor Neurone Disease.
Jim Gannon still cannot call upon Ashley Stott as the striker remains unavailable with an ankle injury, whilst Callum Henry will be given a fitness test on Saturday morning after feeling a hamstring twinge in our draw on Monday to title chasing Curzon Ashton.
Danny Meadowcroft returns to the fray after missing Monday due to family issues.
Darlington have no injury concerns and have a fully fit squad to choose from.
We've Met Before...
The last time our two teams met was earlier this season when we travelled to Heritage Park to see a fantastic 1 - 0 victory for the trickies. A fine solo Brian Summerskill effort was the difference between the two sides as Vics put together a great team performance. You can watch extended highlights from that game at the following link - http://www.darlington1883.co.uk/?p=5651

Gary Burnett has 6 goals since the turn of the year and will be ready to find the net when the Quakers visit, whilst at the other end of the field we see in form Tim Deasy who has kept 3 cleansheets in 4 games throughout March. Tim has played in each game this season and has put in some impressive dispalys and will look to keep Darlington out for a second time this season.
Scott Harries also continues to impress flying down the wing following his recovery from a broken foot earlier in the season.
Tim will face strong opposition however with Quakers striker Stephen Thompson netting 19 goals in additions to 16 goal forward Amar Purewal and David Dowson who has 13 to his name.
