On this day in 2010, Town boosted their chances of staying up with a vital win over relegated Darlington. 

The home side's leading scorer Tadhg Purcell missed a good chance to put them in front in the 18th minute. 

But the Mariners took advantage in the 21st when Oliver Lancashire headed in Peter Sweeney's corner. 

And Town doubled their advantage in the final moments of the first half courtesy of Jean Louis Akpa Akapro's neat side-foot finish from 10 yards.
