Darts boss Tony Burman says the midweek FA Trophy win at Dover will give them a timely buzz.
They are preparing to face National League South leaders Maidenhead on Saturday.
Darts sit 10 points behind the leaders –albeit with a game in hand – but the win at Dover was Dartford’s eighth straight away from home in all competitions.
Burman said: “We can absolutely take confidence from it. It’s going to give us a buzz but we’ve been playing well anyway.
“We’ve been playing well for the last three months so it’s a great achievement to come to a good club in a league higher and beat them and to deservedly beat them.”
Victory was sealed by a thunderbolt by former Dover trialist Luke Wanadio and Burman said: “Luke can be a good player. He’s got a lot of potential.
“You’ve got to get players happy off the field as well as on it. We’re working hard at that and he’s showing his potential in the games.
“He might not always play and he’s got to learn that he’s part of a squad but it was a great finish and showed what he can do.”
Andy Pugh and Tom Gardiner should return at Maidenhead from knocks picked up on Saturday, although Tom Bonner remains suspended.
