The shot stopper has had his fair share of injury troubles this season and has been kept out of the side by Rhys Evans since the opening day of the season - a decision that baffled the majority of fans.
The 36 year old has previously had a loan spell at Bury this season when they had a goalkeeper crisis, when 3 of their 'keepers were injured at once!
He returned to Blackpool following the loan spell and re-injured his troublesome thumb.
He is expected to make his Darlington debut in their Johnston's Paint Trophy match against Doncaster Rovers.
This leaves only Rhys Evans, Lewis Edge and young Kyle Clancy as the goalkeepers at the Seaside.
