Kenny Clark and Jason Prior could return from injury to play for Dartford against Ebbsfleet United in the FA Cup on Saturday
All eyes are on the Dartford treatment room ahead of Saturday’s huge FA Cup clash with local rivals Ebbsfleet at Stonebridge Road.
Darts boss Tony Burman is sweating on the fitness of defender Kenny Clark and striker Jason Prior, who both missed the 4-3 win over Hyde last weekend.
Prior (ankle) hasn’t played since the 1-1 draw with Salisbury on October 8, while Clark has been sidelined with a hamstring injury he suffered at Hereford four days later.
Burman is definitely without injured defender Tyrone Sterling and on-loan striker Adam Birchall.
Parent club Gillingham don't want Birchall to become cup-tied and he's been struggling with a hamstring injury.
With that in mind, Burman admitted the physio’s report on Clark and Prior would be crucial.
He said: "It'll be telling who can field the stronger side and who’s not going to be injured.
"There were some big characters not in the side (on Saturday) and we could have done with them.
"Ebbsfleet are full of good players who have played at a higher level but we’re getting it together and we’ve got some good players, so we’ll see."
Elliot Bradbrook is back in the Dartford squad after missing the Hyde game through suspension.
