Burman: Let's make Dartford better than it already is

Friday 10th March 2006

After losing their last three home games, Dartford manager Tony Burman is looking to get back to winning ways tomorrow, writes Stephen McCartney.

Basement boys Potters Bar Town – who I saw produce an eight goal thriller in their home draw against Sittingbourne last month – are the visitors to Stonebridge Road as the Darts aim to keep their play-off hopes on track.

Burman, speaking to www.dartfordfootballclub.co.uk  is anticipating a tough encounter against the Herfordshire outfit.

“They are at the wrong end of the table fighting to avoid relegation,” he said.  “We have been there and we know how difficult it is to get out of it.

”I have watched our opponents recently and I can tell you this will be a tough game,” he warned.  “We are in a difficult situation ourselves at the moment with our run of poor results but at least it is at the right end of the table.

”I think the last two performances from the players has seen a massive improvement in their play against two very good sides.”

The Darts stalwart, who should be leading the club at their new stadium at Princes Park next season, will add Steve Hafner to his squad following injury.

”This week we have had two excellent training sessions and the atmosphere at the moment is just how I would want it before the game tomorrow,” he revealed.

”Last year by sticking together we avoided relegation.  I hope we can take that experience into our next nine games and make this club better than what it already is – but again this will only happen if we all stick together.”
