Dartford can climb out of the Skrill Premier relegation zone by beating Hereford United

Dartford could drag themselves out of the Skrill Premier relegation zone for the first time since early November this weekend.

Tuesday’s 5-1 win over Woking was the Darts’ third victory in four games and it lifted them above fellow strugglers Tamworth and to within two points of safety.

And on Saturday they host a Hereford side still reeling from a 7-0 thrashing at Luton last weekend and without an away win for almost three months.

Dartford boss Tony Burman said: "They’re another full-time side and it’ll be a tough game but things went right for us on Tuesday night.

"There’s going to still be times from now until the end of the season when things might not quite go our way.

"But it’s not all doom and gloom just because something doesn’t go our way on a certain day.

"There are now 14 games left and there’s plenty to play for. We’ve still got to play everyone around us and they’re going to be big games. We’ve still got Luton, Cambridge and Grimsby to play but we’ve got eight games at home now, which are going to be big games.

"I’ve always said to the supporters that we’ve got to pull together and that’s what we’re doing at the moment. They’re enjoying what they’re seeing."
