Ryan Hayes loves nothing more than turning on the style at Princes Park.
Hayes admits confidence is flowing through the squad as they chase the National League South title.
Darts have now won 10 of their last 11 home games and Hayes said: “I do like playing home games, I enjoy it. I say to the missus every Saturday morning that I’m going to try to do well and score a goal for her and the kids.
“My confidence is high. The gaffer tells us to enjoy it and entertain. When you get an early goal you can relax a bit, and try and do the flicks and tricks.”
Hayes, who turns 31 next month, opened the scoring in last Saturday’s win over Whitehawk and laid on the third goal in a virtuoso display.
He scored with keeper Tom Stewart seemingly losing the ball in the sun, just as he had when Hayes swung in an earlier free-kick from the touchline.
He said: “From the dugout our boys were saying try and get on the keeper as the sun was bad down that goal. I had a free-kick that just went wide but I just tried to put the keeper in the sun.
“It was good. You always want to try and score if you can. We said in the changing room that if we start well and get an early goal then it would be more comfortable for us and in the end it was, luckily enough.”
