By all accounts we dodged a bullet there. An away draw at Darla is always a decent result.

Although we scored first we seemed to be under pressure for most of the game. Some Darla fans are not happy at our defensive tactics, but hey ho we got a draw !

:roll:

what were people saying about your defensive tactics.

I thought we dominated the game, other than a 10 min spell after you scored. Maguire is a menace and had no doubt he was going to score.

Having said that, after our dominance, you could have nicked it, if Wrightson hadn't shanked his finish.

Your 2 CBs defended admirably.

2 points dropped in our case

The phrases that were quoted to me included the likes of “Come for a draw” , “Playing 9-0-1 formation” etc. ( Some said in jest no doubt, but my mate who was there said that one or two Darlington fans were upset at our tactics, but equally upset that you couldn’t break down the tactic and make more of it.

The comments were sent by text from the game ...I wasn’t there

I certainly didn't think that. Yes there was an element of time wasting after 30 mins, but that's to be expected. Blyth looked sharp early on. I do think you look a little light, but that might be down to Hopson going and a few injuries (especially Dale)
