Dartford boss Tony Burman admits they could be short of players for the game at Maidenhead United

By Steve Tervet

Dartford could be short of players at Maidenhead on Tuesday night.

They were missing Callum McNaughton, Lee Burns (both injured), Elliot Bradbrook (ill) and Tom Bradbrook (suspended) for Saturday's game against Whitehawk.

And manager Tony Burman's problems grew further when George Sykes came off sick and Danny Harris pulled up with a hamstring injury in the first half at Princes Park.

Academy players Ben Francis and Jack Glander made up the numbers on the bench and Darts could be even more stretched for the Maidenhead match at York Road.

Burman said: "We’ve got a roll call, that’s for sure, on Monday. It’s looking like we are going to be short of players. I’m going to have to see what we can do for Tuesday night.

"Danny seemed to have a slight hamstring injury. It was like he couldn’t walk and then he went on a run and we said ‘what’s happening?’

"He needed to come off and George just wasn’t feeling well. He was really feeling rough.

"I didn’t know that before the game. He was quite effective while he was out there but he wasn’t feeling well. Hopefully he’ll be all right for Tuesday.

"Elliot's got a slight pull in his thigh but it was illness mainly. Hopefully he can be back but then we lose him through suspension for another three games.

"On the plus side, Nobes (Lee Noble) has come in and done 90 minutes. That was tough for him.

"Barry (Cogan) had to come on earlier than we wanted to put him on.

"Tom Bradbrook becomes available as of Tuesday but it’s in different positions that we need them."
