Recent respective form guides

Darlington's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While The Quakers have scored 4, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.

Peterborough's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. Only 3 goals have been registered in this time, with 4 leaked at the wrong end.

Darlington find themselves struggling down in 16th position in the league having picked up 30 points from their 25 matches. Peterborough's total of 38 points from their 26 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola League Two.
