Bascome and Donawa facing cup dilemma
Darlington manager Alun Armstrong is hopeful of keeping Bermuda pair Osagi Bascome and Justin Donawa from travelling away on international duty ahead of a crucial FA Cup replay against Walsall.
Both players featured as non-League Darlington snatched a last-gasp 2-2 draw in the first-round encounter away at the Sky Bet League Two outfit on Saturday, with Bascome’s free kick being tucked home by Joe Wheatley, seven minutes into added time.
That set up a replay back at Darlington’s Blackwell Meadows Stadium on November 20, just a day after Bermuda are set to face Mexico in their final group B game in League A of the Concacaf Nations League.
Having also had defender Ben Hedley sent off, Armstrong was left pondering the possibility of keeping the Bermudians back for the cup-tie.
“I’m probably going to have to stop my two Bermudans Osagi Bascome and Justin Donawa going on international duty because now Ben’s suspended, I will only have one player left on the bench,” Armstrong told the Press Association.
