Dartford took a point off league leaders Maidenhead in a National League South stalemate on Saturday.
The Darts bounced back from their 4-1 mauling at Hampton on Bank Holiday Monday with a clean sheet.
But they could not find a way past a Maidenhead defence, who have not conceded now for five league matches.
Dartford went close inside the first 13 seconds when Danny Harris helped the ball on and Duane Ofori-Acheampong's near-post shot was held by keeper Carl Pentney.
It was Ofori-Acheampong's pace and power that caused Maidenhead early concern but he faded as the half went on.
Darts lost defender Keaton Wood to injury on 14 minutes, forcing a defensive reshuffle as Tom Gardiner went to centre-back and Danny Harris dropped into right-back again.
Maidenhead went close with James Comley's long-range shot and Harry Pritchard headed over but, without leading scorer James Tarpey, their attacking intent in the first half was lacking.
Luke Wanadio showed glimpses on the left-wing, his right-foot cross evading Ofori-Acheampong and going just wide of the upright.
Maidenhead upped the tempo after the break and skipper Alan Massey's long-range shot was turned behind for a corner.
They had a goal disallowed for offside on 61 minutes when Pritchard's free-kick came back off the underside of the bar. Sean Marks was on hand to head in the rebound but assistant Ryan Whitaker raised his flag for offside.
Darts responded in the last 15 minutes as Wanadio's low shot was deflected just over his own bar by Dean Inman.
Dartford had late claims for a penalty rejected as keeper Carl Pentney clattered into Ben Francis, who needed lengthy treatment after meeting fellow substitute Ryan Hayes' dangerous cross.
