I ONCE heard someone describe the Northeast as a “brilliant night out for seedy adventures” but to be fair, the last time I heard from him, he'd been accosted by an angry mob in a cinema during a screening of Brokeback Mountain.
Still, enough about poor old Craneguy – I've always preferred the evening footballing scene than the alternative night scene and I'm making a return to my old stomping ground of Blackwell Meadows after a long lay off…
DARLINGTON VS. KIDDERMINSTER HARRIERS:
They say the best things come to those who wait and a closer look at H2H's reveals a definite preponderance of 2nd half goals with 2-5-2 coming coming in the latter 45 minutes across the most recent 3 meetings!
Late goals were always a good market for The Quakers games and it's not just a historic picture; 40% of Darlo's games thus far in 2019/20 have seen them score in the last 15 minutes of the game with around 50% coming in the 2nd half of those games.
Similarly, Kidderminster have seen the majority of their own goals later on with 65% coming in the latter half and 45% coming in the final half hour.
Both sides have seen no shortage of goals in general this campaign with 16 spread between both sides combined last 3 games; H2Hwise, the tally sits at 3-7-3-6-3 and I'm siding with late goals again in the National League North tonight!
