Dartford joint-boss Adam Flanagan defends his team over 'tin hats' claim

By Matthew Panting

Dartford joint-manager Adam Flanagan has defended his team's style of play.

Flanagan was responding to comments made by Welling manager Steve King after the Darts won 1-0 at Princes Park on New Year's Day.

King said: "They play a certain way, I don’t like to be disrespectful of other teams and they’ve got the three points, but you’ve got to come here and defend with tin hats to not lose the game.

"I think we defended brilliantly for 99 per cent of the game and then there’s a free-kick at the end that’s a nothing ball into the box and they’ve tapped it in."

But Flanagan was quick to point out that the teams are now level on points in National League South - and he doesn't care what other managers think.

When asked for his response, Flanagan said: "I don’t really care what the opposition manager says.

"His job is to look after his team, and our job is to look after our team.

"Our job is to win games and if that means we’re a little bit direct to win games then we’ll take that because while they might have been playing free-flowing football, unless I’m mistaken we are on the same amount of points.

"We’ll just concentrate on what we’re doing and their manager should just concentrate on what they’re doing."
