Darlington have not exactly set the league alight this season after playing very well last season and finishing in 5th place. They are rooted in 15th place on the log after winning 3. drawing 4 and losing 3 of 10 games. They have scored 13 and conceded the same number in those games. They are also winless in 6 games losing 3 and drawing 3. They played out a disappointing 0-0 draw with Leamington at the weekend and they have another chance to move further up the table with a victory here tonight.
United of Manchester finished in 13th place last season and they do not look like they will improve on that finish this term. They have 4 losses and 2 wins in their last 6 games although one of those wins was against promotion favorite York away. They have an unlikely chance here to get something and that should be difficult as the bookmaker have made them outsiders for this one.
These team played out thrillers last season with Darlington winning both games 4-2 and 3-2 though they were playing much better then than they are now. Both teams are on a rough patch and need points to further their cause but I would not be fooled by the bookmakers making the home side overwhelming favorites as this league tends so bring enough upsets of its own. I like the look of goals here and considering this fixture has seen a lot of it, my pick is Over 2.5 & BTTS.
