Darby's Day

Last updated : 08 February 2002 By Andy Beill
Darby said that he had a "magnificent time" in East Yorkshire and is hoping to be on the Diamonds' teamsheet at the weekend.

"I am really looking forward to going back. I hope I get a good reception from the fans because I loved my time there and they were always great.
"Even though the team were struggling at the time the fans were still behind us and came out in numbers. They are a very well supported club."

Darby played 91 times between 1996 and 1998 after signing from Doncaster, and scored 36 goals. He then returned a year later on loan from Notts County and made 8 appearances.
The 28-year-old said: "I haven't been back since and I'm looking forward to it.
"Obviously, I'd love to play against one of my former clubs. My strike rate has been pretty good but I've been in and out of the side.
"It has been frustrating over the last few weeks and if I do get a start tomorrow it will be a bonus."

Jamaican international Onandi Lowe has been struggling with a chest injury so Darby may get the nod, with Lowe joining compatriot Ian Goodison in the stands.

Meanwhile, centre back Andy Tillson could make his Diamonds debut after signing until the end of the season, with Barry Hunter going down with a fractured foot.

Butterworth, Setchell and Burgess remain injured, but Mustafa, Mills and Gray are back to fitness.
