Dartford couldn't believe they left Alfreton with only a draw to show for their efforts.

The visitors were by far the better side in Tuesday's night Vanarama Conference relegation battle.

They created a series of good chances in Derbyshire but were up against in-form keeper Jason Mooney, who was named man-of-the-match for the hosts.

Poor finishing also hit Darts, with Tony Burman's side 10 points adrift of safety with only seven games left.

Burman said: "For me, we were in control for long parts of the game.

"We played very well and created a lot more chances than we did at Southport. The fact their keeper was man-of-the-match tells you everything.

"We've obviously got to put the ball in the net and we haven't done that but I really can't believe we haven't won that game. It's a crazy situation.

"The keeper's made good saves but there were chances we should have taken.

"The players were down having played that well and not won.

"It's staring them in the face the situation we're in and it's a bitter bill to swallow to only come away with a point.

"We've just to keep going, though. There's a lot of strange results at this time of year."

Harry Crawford, Danny Harris and on-loan Brighton youngster Tom Dallison had Dartford's best chances but there was no way past Mooney.

Dartford: Ibrahim, Richards (Burns 86mins), Dallison, Noble (Hayes 81mins), Driver, Sweeney, McAuley, Bradbrook, Crawford, Harris, Pugh. Subs not used: Daley, Kessell, Collier.

Attendance: 490
