Tony Burman: Dartford can't relax over play-offs yet

By Luke Cawdell

Dartford boss Tony Burman isn’t ready to relax until his team’s play-off place is mathematically secure.

Victory over Eastbourne Borough on Saturday leaves the Darts with a nine-point cushion with four to play.

Burman said: “We have 75 points and I think we still need three points to get us across the line.

“I was hoping we would have had it done by now but it’s not to be and we have a tough weekend coming up, over Easter, with two difficult games.”

The Darts travel to Hungerford on Friday and host Hampton & Richmond Borough on Monday.

Both teams still have an outside chance of making the National League South play-offs themselves.

Burman said: “Hungerford have got to win all of their games and they start with us at home on Good Friday.

“We have Hampton on Monday and they might still think they have a chance of taking fifth spot, who knows? They are two tough games.

“We have the cushion and deserve to have it. We have been in it for the majority of this year but we won’t take anything for granted.”
