Billy Dearden talks to Evening Post about Ian Holmes: "Ian is till learning. He's nowhere near the finished article yet but he's keen to improve. "He's proved in the last two or three matches that he won't let anyone down and will work hard for the team. The last couple of away games we have played him up there on his own with Browny (Simon Brown) just behind him. Ian has worked very hard - but that is what he has to keep doing and I'm sure he will."

Billy Dearden talks to Evening Post about Wycombe game: "I would like to think that game was a one-off and we can forget about it. We didn't handle the conditions well and we gave them three bad goals. Darlington are a good side but we have to get going again at home by getting wins and clean sheets, as we were doing before Christmas."
