Leading scorer Alfie Pavey has paid tribute to Dartford skipper Elliot Bradbrook’s influence this season.
Pavey has netted 26 times for Darts to put them within touching distance of the National League South title.
And the striker hailed Bradbrook, who could play his 410th – and final - game for Dartford at Bognor this weekend.
“I’ll praise Elliot Bradbrook once again,” said Pavey. “He’s been on my back every week and praised me after every game.
“He texts me, let’s me know what I’ve been doing, what I can do more.
“As a captain I don’t think we could have a better person around the changing room.”
Pavey also revealed that the loan signing of striker Danny Mills from Ebbsfleet has driven him on even more in the second half of the season.
Mills often started ahead of Pavey when he first joined the Darts but the pair have played together in recent weeks.
Pavey said: “The fact Tony Burman brought in Danny Mills, I’m going to hold my hands up and praise Danny a lot.
“He has come in and pushed me on a lot, to better myself. I didn’t want to be sitting on that bench and I knew what I needed to do.
“Danny hasn’t had as much credit as he deserved. He’s worked hard, done the nitty-gritty stuff and is now getting his rewards by scoring the goals.
“Those last two away games, he got us 1-0 wins, so credit to Danny Mills.”
