Manager Tony Burman admits draws will not be good enough if Dartford are serious about winning National League South.
Darts are top of the table after 11 games but with the top nine covered by just three points, there are plenty of teams ready to take their place.
Burman’s side go to Weston-super-Mare on Saturday chasing their fourth win on the bounce and anything less won’t be good enough for the manager.
He said: “A lot of teams are playing on the same level and it’s going to be about who’s consistent – not so much creeping away but trying to get those wins.
“Draws are not going to be good results, you’ve got to win your games.
“It’s still going to be tough but the amount of games teams have had to play has definitely affected them.
“Weston have picked up a bit lately in the league and had some decent results. We know they’ve got some good players and we’ve always had good games down there.
“Hopefully, we can continue with the form we’ve shown and stay where we are in the league.”
Dartford are top on goal difference having scored more goals than anyone else (27) and conceded just eight.
They started the season with three draws but have been impressive since then, winning six of their last eight and losing just once.
Burman said: “We pride ourselves on getting into good habits and plugging away.
“We’ve been excellent with the chances created and defensively we’ve been good, although I was upset in the Eastbourne game (which Dartford won 4-2).
“We want to have the best defence in the league and we haven’t got that at the moment. It was taken away from us with those two goals.
“It’s showing in the goal difference that we’ve converted a lot of chances and not let a lot of goals in. Being sloppy cost us last year and we’ve got to make sure that doesn’t happen again.”
