Dartford captain Elliot Bradbrook has issued a rallying cry to his team-mates as the relegation run-in starts to intensify.

Bradbrook (pictured) scored the winner as the Darts beat Wrexham 2-1 on Saturday, a result which lifted them to within two points of safety.

And they now have 15 games left to save their season and avoid relegation from the Skrill Premier.

Bradbrook said: "It’s getting to the crunch time and that’s when men are made. We’ve got to stand up and be counted.

"We’ve got 15 games left and apart from Luton, Grimsby and Cambridge, the other 12 are against teams immediately above us, so they’re going to be big games.

"We haven’t got the same footballing quality in the changing room as some of the other big clubs.

"But what Dartford have always had is a fighting spirit, hard work and determination to get results.

"Tony (Burman) said after the Wrexham game 'that was a Dartford performance.' That’s what we’ve been trying to achieve all year.

"It’s starting to go for us and rather than going into the last 15 games all doom and gloom, there’s a glimmer of hope now."
