Dartford boss Tony Burman wants his side to impress in front of the home fans

By Luke Cawdell

Dartford will be hoping for a warm reception when they make a welcome return to Princes Park this weekend.

The Darts have won their last five games – all away from home – playing just one game on their own patch in the last nine.

They haven’t played in front of their own fans since beating Concord Rangers at the end of September.

Tony Burman’s men have excelled on their travels since then, earning themselves a place in the FA Cup first round and a spot just outside the National South play-off places.

Burman said: “It’s been amazing to go so long since our last home game.

“Hopefully, a lot of people will turn up for us on Saturday with what has been happening away from home, where we have had some great support.

“The pitch is looking good, as it hasn’t had any football on it for so long, hopefully we can now put on a good performance.”

Darts have seen an end to their early-season injury woes and have climbed back up the table.

Victory over lowly Oxford City this Saturday could move them into the play-off places, and with eight straight wins behind them in all competitions, three successive clean sheets and no defeats in 11, it’s no wonder the club are buzzing.
