Dartford boss Tony Burman welcomes back three players that missed the FA Cup clash against Ebbsfleet United
Dartford welcome back three of their FA Cup absentees this weekend for a crucial Skrill Premier game at Forest Green Rovers.
On-loan strikers Matt Godden (pictured) and Adam Birchall were ineligible for the fourth qualifying round tie against Ebbsfleet and their return is a welcome attacking boost for manager Tony Burman.
Meanwhile, defender Kenny Clark is back in the squad after missing three games with a hamstring injury. Burman chose to save him for Saturday’s game rather than press him into FA Cup action.
Tyrone Sterling (calf) and Jason Prior (ankle) are still at least a week away from returning and the club are waiting for news on skipper Elliot Bradbrook’s cracked ribs.
Burman hopes the victory over Ebbsfleet will bring his players even closer together.
He said: "We put our bodies on the line. Hopefully, that’ll give them a little bit of spirit, a little bit of determination. League football is different to the cup.
"Kenny Clark was close to playing on Tuesday but I decided against it. He'll be ready for Saturday.
"Birch should be available. Hopefully he comes through training this week and his hamstring's OK."
