  • Hereford have made the long trip to Darlington for today’s game looking for an eighth away win of the season.
  • Under caretaker manager Yan Klukowski the Bulls have won four, drawn two and lost three. Today’s hosts sit in 6th - four places and eight positions above Hereford in the table. Darlington have a reasonable home record of eight wins, six draws and four defeats.
  • Klukowski will be looking for a response after his side were held to a goal-less draw against basement side AFC Telford United last weekend. That was their second league game without scoring and Hereford have scored just three goals in their last five matches.
  • All the pressure is on Darlington today who have seen their play-off run stutter without a win in six matches which includes three defeats.
