Dartford will be taking nothing for granted when they head north-west to play relegated Hyde this weekend.

The Tigers, rock-bottom of Skrill Premier and already consigned to the drop, could yet finish the season with the lowest points tally in Conference history.

But Darts boss Tony Burman, whose side desperately need a win to keep their survival hopes alive, expects Hyde to play with a freedom which could make them dangerous opponents.

He said: "Hyde are a good footballing side. We’ll be approaching the game as if we were playing any other side.

"Hyde, unfortunately for them, have been relegated but that’s going to take the pressure off them and they’ll relax a little bit, enjoy themselves.

"We’ve got to get our house in order, otherwise Saturday’s result (a 1-1 draw at Cambridge) means nothing. It’s a tough game. They got a result at Hereford on Saturday.

"We’ve got to just do what we can do and not worry about anybody else."

Centre-back Kenny Clark came off with concussion at Cambridge and could be a doubt for Saturday but Rory McAuley is available for selection again, having been ineligible for the game against his parent club last weekend.

And striker Alex Wall will be in the squad after extending his loan from Luton.
