Mikel Suarez is determined to be ready for when Dartford call on his services in their relegation battle.

The former Tonbridge Angels striker joined the Darts in January but has only made two substitute appearances in the Skrill Premier.

Luton loanee Alex Wall (pictured) has led the line in recent weeks but Suarez is prepared to be patient when it comes to getting game time.

Suarez said: "Tommy (Warrilow, the Tonbridge manager) mentioned that the gaffer here (Tony Burman) was interested in signing me.

"My understanding is that he spoke to Tommy about me previously but it didn’t materialise. Since then, he’s brought a few strikers in on loan.

"He wanted a big man and he’s got Alex Wall from Luton, who’s doing well, so I guess I’ll just have to wait for my chance.

"Hopefully, when I do get it, I’ll make the most of it."

Suarez played the full 90 minutes on Tuesday night when Dartford lost 3-0 at home to Dover in the Kent Senior Cup quarter-finals.
