Fans may not like the odd atmosphere at the 25,000 Darlington Arena but you are guaranteed easy parking, never a queue for the toilets and plenty of room to move which is why the Quakers will be missed by some next season. But not by Accrington.
The Reds have never won in Darlington and, despite the Quakers condemned to non-league football next season, the Stanley managed to continue their unwanted record at the sparsley populated stadium on Saturday.
Stanley’s three other League Two clashes at the Arena had been defeats so at least they did improve with a goalless draw which ended a run of five straight losses and also marked the first clean sheet in ten games for the Reds.
And boss John Coleman admitted that, despite one look at the table where many would predict a Reds win, a point was a welcome return for his out-of-form side against the bottom club.
"You have got to take the positives out of it and we worked hard and showed more quality in the second half," said the Stanley boss.
"Their keeper has made two great saves and Bavs (Ian Dunbavin) has had one to make.
"We have got to look at it as a step forward rather than a backward step and we have stopped the bleeding and we haven’t conceded.
"We believed we could and should have won but we didn’t create enough clear cut chances and we are not getting the attacking and defending balance right at the moment."
Darlington have also struggled to get the balance right.
The cost of the huge stadium has helped to lead to two administrations in recent times but on the pitch, up to last year, the Quakers had been regular challengers for promotion.
Now they appear to have steadied the ship off the field with local businessman Raj Singh but the Quakers have gone through three managers this season - Colin Todd, Steve Staunton and now its Simon Davey - and, after seven defeats in their first nine games, they were doomed early on and now face relegation.
Davey, though, has given them a bit more steel and they do have the scalps of Rotherham and Shrewsbury in the bag as they have proved no pushovers in recent times.
But they still have the worst record in the league for goals conceded.
Saying that, Stanley also have one of the leakiest defences and you would have thought that goals were guaranteed in this game - but it wasn’t to be.
And while a draw didn’t get the Reds three points, Coleman was relieved that the clean sheet broke up a bad run and hopefully would give his side a platform to build on after conceding sloppy goals in the latter part of the campaign.
After changes in the previous two games, the Reds boss stuck to his more regular backline with Billy Kee and Michael Symes up front and Bobby Grant on the wing although Kee couldn’t make a big impression and was subbed at half-time.
Symes had one chance which he curled just wide of the post but clear cut chances were at a premium and it certainly wasn’t a thriller for the watching 2,500 fans.
After the break, the Reds did do better with winger John Miles coming on and, but for a superb double save from goalkeeper Shane Redmond, Stanley could have left the Darlington Arena with that important win.
Redmond superbly kept out a Darran Kempson effort and then quickly following it up to keep out a Grant blast near the end of the game to deny the Reds three points.
But Dunbavin also had to do his bit to keep the visitors in it when a ball over the top found the Quakers top scorer Tadhg Purcell but the keeper denied him with his legs.
All in all a draw was a fair result and Coleman was relatively happy while the playing of the Monty Python's "Always look on the bright side of life" shows the North Easterners haven’t lost their sense of humour despite their League Two life ending.
