  • ROLLING MATCH REPORT
  • Darlington winger Jarrett Rivers caused the Bulls early problems flashing a cross across the box after eight minutes.
  • Moments later the hosts were ahead with Rivers finding Ben Hedley who crosses onto the head of Luke Charman to score.
  • The Bulls looked to respond and Ben Pollock found Ollie Hulbert whose rifled effort was saved.
  • Darlington goalkeeper Taylor was forced back into action on 23 minutes picking out Pollock's effort which looked to be heading into the top corner.
  • Charman should have had his second goal before the break free inside the box but his tame effort was easily saved by Jordan Wright.
  • Despite the Bulls looking more dominant after the break the hosts had the better of the early chances.
  • Rivers saw his effort cleared by Reiss McNally to Kevin Dos Santos whose effort was cleared off the line.
  • The resulting corner is saved by debutant Jordan Wright into the path of Danny Ellis who blazed over.
  • At the other end the Bulls were looking threatening and a shot was deflected into the path of Ryan Lloyd who saw his effort well saved by Taylor.
