Dartford boss Tony Burman happy to let players choose air travel for weekend's visit to Truro in National League South

Dartford are letting the plane take the strain when they travel to Truro this weekend.

Boss Tony Burman let the players choose their mode of transport for the long trek west to the Cornish city.

He said: “We put it to the players and we’re going to fly there, going on Saturday morning and coming back straight after.

“It works out cheaper than going up on the Friday and staying overnight. We did it last year and the players wanted to do it again.

“It’s an early start. I wasn’t there for the trip last year and it’s nice for the players to do it again.”

Burman will hope to have a new face onboard. He has been on the hunt for a keeper ahead of the game as regular stopper Deren Ibrahim is on international duty with Gibraltar.

Meanwhile left-back Tom Wynter could make a swift return following his recent knee injury, picked up in the win over Concord Rangers a fortnight ago.

The Darts conceded early last week in their FA Cup game against Slough and Burman will be hoping they can kick into top gear from the off in this Saturday’s National League South encounter.

He said: “We needed to up our game in the second half (against Slough) and it’s something I keep having to say. Once we get out of third gear and into fourth or fifth we look a decent side."
