Ian Townsend of townsendearound.com said of Dartford:
"Dartford are underachieving this year but they are a decent side. They'll be favourites and deservedly so. But with the usual endeavour and a bit of luck...you never know.
On Saturday, Sutton had much of the play but a static defence, and it cost them. Dartford set up in a rather similar way. Cautious optimism is the order of the day!"
Dan Gander: Winnable game, they are struggling in the Conference and we are full of confidence #COYH
