Exeter City travel to take on Darlington at Balfour Webnet Darlington Aren on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Grecians will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 17 and win only 5 of the 29 games.
The last time the two teams met at Darlington was back in March 2003, over five years ago, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a League Division Three match.
