Darlington have signed former Northern Ireland Under-19 striker James Gray on non-contract terms in time for Saturday's trip to Braintree Town.
The Quakers have also brought in Bradford City forward Niall Rodney on a one-month loan deal.
Gray, 19, was released by Championship side Middlesbrough during pre-season after his academy scholarship ended.
Rodney, 20, joined the Bantams from Nottingham Forest during the summer and has made seven appearances.
Both players should be available for duty subject to Football Association clearance.
