Dartford defender Tom Gardiner took their latest defensive reshuffle in his stride.
An injury to Keaton Wood meant Gardiner was forced to move to centre-back just 15 minutes into their goalless draw with National League South leaders Maidenhead on Saturday.
Danny Harris again filled in at right-back but the Darts still produced an accomplished defensive display.
“I’m comfortable in both positions, I’ve played them both quite a lot so it’s not a problem.”
It was important for Dartford to bounce back from their Bank Holiday reverse at Hampton and Gardiner revealed that was the message in manager Tony Burman’s pre-match team-talk.
“That was the main thing from the gaffer,” added Gardiner. “We had our heads on it and got a result.
“That’s our main aim when we start the game, we go out there (as defenders) to try and get a clean sheet. I thought we were unfortunate not to get a winner but maybe a draw was a fair result.
“We move on to Tuesday (against Welling). It will be a good game, it’s always tough but we’ll dig deep and go again.”
