Recent respective form guides

Darlington's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. The Quakers have conceded a disappointing 9 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.

Aldershot Tn.'s away form is none too clever either, collecting 1 win and 3 draws from the last six played. While the The Shots have hit 7 goals, 11 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Darlington find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 21 games have yielded only 8 points. Aldershot Tn.'s total of 36 points from their 22 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola League Two.
