Dartford manager Tony Burman is aiming for three points against lowly Southport at Princes Park

Dartford return to action on Saturday when Southport visit Princes Park.

The Sandgrounders sit just above the relegation zone but the Darts have lost two of their last three home games and Burman isn’t about to take his eye off the ball.

Burman (pictured) said: "It’s no different where teams are, as far as I’m concerned.

"It’s no good us having a good game at Luton and then losing the next game.

"We’ll try to be consistent and there are three points up for grabs on Saturday. If we don’t prepare and do things right, we’ll get beat.

"I don’t see this as any different to playing against Luton."

Striker Harry Crawford, who began his three-game suspension last weekend, will be missing again on Saturday.

Burman hailed Saturday’s win over title favourites Luton Town as one of the greatest days in his managerial career.

The Darts boss said: "I’ve been fortunate enough to have lots of good days but that certainly ranks as one of the best days, simply because of who we were playing against and where Luton have been, their history.

"Teams have got to do their homework on us and if they don’t, then we might win some games. We have that element of surprise and we’re doing OK."
