Dartford FC working out how best to use their four-man strikeforce

By Steve Tervet

Dartford will play with three up front this season to get the best out of their new-look strikeforce.

Alex Wall has followed Kudus Oyenuga and Delano Sam-Yorke to Princes Park while Andy Pugh has stayed.

The eclectic quartet give joint-managers Jamie Coyle and Adam Flanagan real options and the chance to try different systems.

Coyle said: "The four we've got compliment each other. No two of them are the same.

"We all know what Pughy's capable of with regards to his finishing. He's a real fox in the box.

"Kudus has electric pace, Alex Wall is a target man up there and Delano is mobile and good in the air.

"If we can get three of them up there in the same game and play a 4-3-3, that'll be fantastic.

"To have any three of them playing together will be a real threat to any opponent at this level.

"We won't just stick to one formation this year, we'll look at 3-5-2 and 4-4-2 as well."

Wall returns to Dartford having scored six goals in 11 games on loan from Luton during the 2013-14 season

Former centre-half Coyle said: "I've had some real battles playing against him so I know how much of a handful he is. He's a brilliant acquisition.

"He had a bad year last year with injury so we'll monitor his fitness and with the help of the strength and conditioning coach and the physio team, break him in gradually.

"Not only does he have that physicality but he's also a goal threat.

"The main thing is to keep Alex injury-free this year. If we do, we could have some player on our hands."

Dartford started pre-season training last Tuesday.
