Dartford boss Tony Burman believes there will be no ill-feeling carried over from their Boxing Day clash with Welling when Joe Healy was sent-off for a late tackle on Tom Champion.

The teams meet for the second time in a week on Monday but it’s not something that concerns the Dartford boss too much.

Burman (pictured) said: "I don’t think there’s any bad blood at all. I don’t want to see that.

"We’re all grown-ups and we shake hands after the game. It doesn’t carry over, we’re interested in getting three points and will do our best to do that."

As for the game’s main talking point on Boxing Day, Burman was not surprised to see Healy receive a red card after his late lunge.

He admitted: "He has gone for the ball but was late. I can’t tell you if he had two feet off the floor or not but it was late and sometimes they are yellows and sometimes they are red."
