Striker Duane Ofori-Acheampong is ready to return for Dartford – more than four months since he last kicked a ball in anger.
The big centre-forward has been recovering from knee surgery over the summer but he’s now back in full training.
Ofori-Acheampong, an unused substitute in the Darts’ 3-1 FA Cup win over Barking on Saturday, will soon be pushing for a start in National League South.
Manager Tony Burman said: “He was immense last year. It’ll be like having a new signing and he’s going to push the guys who are playing so well at the moment. It’s good competition.
“He’s not only a top guy but if he comes back firing on all cylinders, he’s going to be a top player at this level.
“I’m not saying he’s going to score every week but with his presence and work rate, he creates chances for other people.
“It’s nice to have one person scoring all the goals but it’s not what we want. I always want not just forwards but midfield players and defenders to score goals. I’m sure that will improve once Duane is back.”
Full-backs Danny Harris and Mark Onyemah should both be available for the trip to Weston on Saturday.
Harris is back from a hamstring injury – aggravated in the home win against Eastbourne – while Onyemah missed two games after travelling to Nigeria for his brother’s wedding.
Andy Pugh came through 90 minutes against Barking with no problems while Tom Murphy and Warren Mfula are also getting closer to full fitness.
