Dartford's crucial Skrill Premier clash with Chester at Princes Park will be shown live on BT Sport.

The game has been brought forward a day to Friday, March 7, after BT chose it as one of their four live games for that month.

It promises to be a nervy evening, with both sides embroiled in the relegation dogfight. Dartford held Chester to a goalless draw in the reverse fixture in September.

Kick-off is at 7.45pm, with coverage starting at 7pm.

Dartford's only previous appearance on live TV came in October 2012, when they beat eventual champions Mansfield Town 2-0 at Princes Park.

That game was screened by Premier Sports, the Football Conference's previous broadcasters partners, who were also due to cover Dartford v Wrexham in March 2013.

But a waterlogged pitch meant the game was put back from Friday night to Saturday afternoon, scuppering Premier Sports' plans.
