Dartford Move Up to Third

Dartford moved into third place in the Vanarama National League South table on Tuesday night after edging out lowly Weston-super-Mare by the odd goal in five at Princes Park.

Although lying just above the drop zone, Weston came into the game in decent form, having drawn one and won three of their previous four games, including last Saturday`s `six-pointer` win over fourth-bottom Concord Rangers.

In contrast, the Darts recent results have been patchy and they needed a win to get back amongst the top five.

But it was the Seagulls who opened the scoring in virtually their first foray forward in the 11th minute when recent signing Gethyn Hill scored from close range.

It took a while for the Darts to get back into the game, but they finally restored parity just shy of the hour-mark with a fine left-footed strike from Tom Wynter.

And on 66 minutes, Tony Burman`s side had the lead when Danny Harris slid in to score from six yards.

Battling Weston showed why they have been getting some decent recent results and equalised just 5 minutes later when Lloyd Humphries` effort from 20 yards was deflected past Deren Ibrahim.

However, with 8 minutes remaining, Alex Brown (pictured) – who was the villain last Saturday when he was sent-off in the Buildbase FA Trophy – became the hero with a terrific 20-yard strike to win the game and lift the Darts to third spot.
