Tony Burman says his Dartford side will be going all-out to earn their supporters the bragging rights when they welcome Ebbsfleet for a huge derby clash at Princes Park on Saturday.

A crowd of up to 4,000 is expected for the all-ticket clash in Blue Square Bet South and Burman hopes his side can build upon their opening win of the Blue Square Bet South campaign on Tuesday night.

Burman said he and his players were relishing the chance to take on their neighbours – who were relegated from Blue Square Premier last season - in front of a packed house.

He said: "I’ve watched Fleet and they are a decent side and we are not 100 per cent right yet.

"There is a lot of history between the clubs and there will be bragging rights up for grabs for the supporters.

"It is good for Kent football and I’m sure it will be the biggest gate of the day in the league but there are still only three points to play for."

With a trip to Chelmsford also looming on Monday afternoon, Burman said: "It will be a big weekend for us with two big games. If we can get something from both games, I’d be well pleased.

"Obviously you want six points but you have to be realistic, we have only won one game. They are both good teams. It is a difficult week ahead."

Elliot Bradbrook could return against Fleet after a hamstring strain but James White is likely to miss out with a similar injury.
