Tonbridge Angels manager Tommy Warrilow finds ally in Dartford boss Tony Burman ahead of sides' FA Trophy clash

By Alex Hoad

Rival managers Tommy Warrilow and Tony Burman have been putting the world to rights ahead of Tonbridge’s FA Trophy second-round tie at Dartford on Saturday.

Angels boss Warrilow and Darts chief Burman are friends off the pitch and had plenty to talk about after recent dips in league form.

Warrilow, pictured, said: "We both want to win on Saturday but we’re good mates and it was nice to have a chat and cheer each other up.

"You lose a couple of games these days and people go way over the top. We put things into perspective."

Angels lost 1-0 at Basingstoke last weekend and sit 16th in Blue Square Bet South, two points off the drop zone but only seven adrift of a play-off place.

Darts have lost their last three league games but are still sixth in their debut season in Blue Square Bet Premier.

Warrilow said: "If we get ourselves right we can give anyone a run for their money. We’re striving to get where they are as a club and we go there full of respect for them, but if we play to our potential we can win."
