The Pure DFC Punter – 13/12/11

Current bank: +7.69 units.

Tuesday night sees the league leaders, Woking, travel to Princes Park in what must be the match of the evening. The Darts have gone eight matches without tasting defeat, and will be up for causing the Cards a shock, whereas Woking have gone a considerable amount of league games without defeat (thirteen, in fact).

Bets of the match:

This is beginning to sound boring, but a draw at 3.6 is the bet we’ll be advising. However, if you fancy the Darts to exert home advantage, then 2.88 is available.

1 point: DRAW @ 3.6 (Blue Square)

 

Dartford v Woking

Dartford face their toughest test on Tuesday night in the rearranged fixture against league leaders Woking at Princes Park.

Both sides are in excellent form as they aim for promotion to the Conference Premier. The Darts are eight matches unbeaten in the league and cup, whilst Woking were last defeated in the Conference South thirteen games ago, dropping a miserly four points on the way.

Charlie Sheringham lifts the ball goalwards in last season's encounter

Last season the clubs entertained a sizeable crowd with The Darts running out 3-2 winners. The Surrey side travelled to Princes Park as an in form side back in April. In a game with five goals, three penalties and a red card no one in the stands could afford to blink. Woking’s Elvis Hammond missed a penalty early on and Charlie Sheringham levelled the penalty miss count. Andy Burgess scored a Ryan Hayes-esque free kick on the half hour to give The Cards a deserved lead.

Then in the space of four minutes the unthinkable happened. Elliot Bradbrook rose the highest to nod home a Lee Noble corner on thirty eight minutes, Sheringham made amends two minutes later with a cute chip over the onrushing goalkeeper and Jack Pallen blasted in the third to make it three goals in four minutes before the break. The second half witnessed the sending off of Adam Doyle and the third penalty of the day was awarded but this time converted by Woking’s Craig Dobson.

The Darts completed a third straight win of the week on Saturday. After winning 3-1 against Dover Athletic in the league and triumphing 4-1 versus Folkestone Invicta in the county cup, Tony Burman’s team beat Brackley Town 3-0 in the F.A Trophy first round.

A cross by Ryan Hayes won a dubious penalty which the referee awarded for handball. Elliot Bradbrook stepped up to placed a powerful shot into the top corner. In the second half Lee Burns and Jacob Erskine traded one two’s up the pitch and Erskine curled a delightful shot in off the bar to make it two. Erskine then netted his fifth Dartford goal of the season when he slid in to make it 3-0.

Moses Ademola scorer of ten league goals for The Cards

Whilst Dartford were in F.A Trophy action on Saturday, The Cards were busy beating Sutton United comfortably. Garry Hill’s team won 4-1 and stretched their lead at the top of the table to nine points. The Surrey club have so far put together the longest unbeaten league run of the season and won eleven of those thirteen matches. More ruthlessly Woking have been scoring for fun netting thirty two times and conceding just eight goals.

Woking have a strong squad and with a strong attack, Moses Ademola (10 league goals), Wayne Gray, Paris Cowan-Hall and Elvis Hammond (all on seven league goals) coupled with the tightest defeat in the Conference South this season they look favourites for promotion. Although Ademola and Cowan-Hall have recently picked up injuries and are unlikely to feature.

The Darts will assess the fitness of Lee Noble who took a knock at Folkestone, Lee Burns and Danny Harris were also substituted on the weekend against Brackley Town due to injuries.

Last season Dartford and Woking were the best supported clubs in the Conference South. The Darts averaged home attendances of 1171 whilst The Cards averaged 1167. This season Woking are top of the attendance charts averaging 298 more than Dartford in second place.

Woking’s thirteen game unbeaten run in the league can only be matched by Chelmsford City, both sides last lost in the Conference South on the 3 September 2011. However no one can better their current winning away streak of five this season.

The Cards have kept the most clean sheets this term with ten in total, five at home and five away.

Dartford and Woking have conceded the least amount of second half goals, The Darts have conceded eight and The Cards have conceded seven.

In last season’s fixtures Dartford and Woking conjured up an impressive nine goals. The sides drew 2-2 in November and The Darts won 3-2 in April. No other Dartford fixture except Boreham Wood produced as many goals in the two meetings.

The Pure DFC Punter – 10th December 2011

Current bank: +8.69 units.

The Darts travel to Brackley Town on Saturday in FA Carlsberg Trophy action. Since the last Pure DFC Punter (Bookies, unsurprisingly, don’t offer odds on the Kent Senior Cup), the Darts have defeated both Dover Athletic and Folkestone Invicta. Dartford are currently seven matches unbeaten, and they go into a match against the Evo-Stick South Premier League leaders.

Scoring doesn’t seem to be a problem at home for Brackley Town as they have racked up 28 goals in 11 games, and in the process pnly dropping four points at home all season. However, Dartford’s recent form and belief is positive news for the visitors.

Bets of the match:

Cup football is a tricky one to call on most occasions, and I wouldn’t like to make too much of a prediction here… if anything, the draw is favourable at 3.6 with our league sponsors.

1 point: DRAW @ 3.6 (Blue Square)

Brackley Town v Dartford

Dartford participate in their second cup tie in four days on Saturday when they visit Brackley Town in the F.A Trophy First Round.

The Darts are a division higher than their Northamptonshire hosts who are currently top of the Southern Premier League. Dartford caused an upset at this stage last year with a replay win against Conference Premier champions Crawley Town. Tony Burman’s side will be careful this time around not to be on the receiving end.

Danny Harris scores in the last round of the F.A Trophy

Dartford have warmed up to their cup clash by winning three consecutive matches. After defeating Eastbourne Borough in a cup replay, Dover Athletic in the league and Folkestone Invicta in the county cup, The Darts could make it eight matches unbeaten in all competitions with progression to round two.

Tony Burman made seven changes to the starting eleven on Wednesday night and came away with a 4-1 victory. Goals by Jacob Erskine, Tom Bonner and a brace from Richard Graham started The Darts defence of the Kent Senior Cup. Lee Noble hobbled off with an injury in the first half, otherwise it was a comfortable night for the squad against Folkestone Invicta.

Brackley Town have made steady progress in recent years and went top of the Southern League on Tuesday night with an impressive 5-2 win against Oxford City. At their home ground, St James Park they have only dropped four points.

The Saints have never made it passed the first round of the F.A Trophy after three previous attempts. The Saints have so far disposed of Northern Premier League’s Mickleover Sports by a solitary goal, beat Southern Premier League’s Hemel Hempstead Town 3-2 and in the last round defeated Southern League Division One outfit Chertsey Town 2-0.

Brackley were promoted to the Southern League in 2004 having spent just two previous seasons at this level in their entire history between 1997-1999. Two years after promotion from their county league they won the Southern League Midlands by an astonishing 15 points.

Managed by the experienced Jon Brady he guided The Saints to their best ever finish just two years ago. Brackley Town lost in the Southern Premier League playoffs having ended the season in fifth. As a player Brady knows what it takes to win leagues after be involved in title winning sides with Chester City and Rushden and Diamonds in the Conference Premier, Kettering Town in the Conference North and Hayes in the Conference South.

St James Park: Brackley Town's home ground has hosted seven straight wins for The Saints

Brady has managed to sign experienced football league players from Northampton Town and Oxford United. Tom Winters has had three professional seasons with Oxford United whilst captain Chris Wilmott has played for both sides. Goalkeeper Billy Turley has played 243 football league matches with Northampton Town and the now defunct Rushden and Diamonds and former Republic of Ireland international Barry Quinn has earned five caps, 83 appearances with Coventry City and 199 with Oxford United.

One player Dartford will be familiar with is striker Jefferson Louis who has netted seven league goals this season for The Saints. Louis played for Maidenhead United last season and scored against The Darts four minutes from time in the final game of the season, luckily he was on the losing side.

Folkestone Invicta v Dartford

The Darts start their quest to retain the Kent Senior Cup with a trip to Folkestone’s Buzzline Stadium.

Dartford’s triumph in May this year was Tony Burman’s third piece of silverware in four seasons. With an F.A Trophy fixture on the weekend the county cup is likely to see some players rested. Burman spoke to PURE DFC, he said: “We’re going to take everyone down to Folkestone, but we have to give ninety minutes to the guys who haven’t played”.

Dartford are delighted with Bradbrook's stunning strike

Strikers Jacob Erskine and Tony Garrod did not feature in Saturday’s superb 3-1 victory over Kent rivals Dover Athletic so it maybe a good chance to see the pair in action. The squad of seventeen also includes last seasons player of the year Lee Noble and pacey forward Danny Harris who are keen to get more minutes under their belts after substitute appearances on the weekend.

Preparation for the cup tie couldn’t have gone any better. Dartford’s biggest home crowd of the season witnessed another win against Dover Athletic. Elliot Bradbrook was upended when he stormed into the penalty box and Adam Green converted the spot kick on seven minutes.

The Whites fought back and won a free kick on thirteen minutes. Dover’s Argentinian, Agustin Battipeidi brilliantly placed a free header beyond Louis Wells to level the scores. At half time the sides were level and after the game Burman commented: “We pressurised them, played a bit higher up the pitch and we managed to get the penalty, it was a good start”, he added: “I thought Dover controlled the game in the first half with their football and fair play to them”.

In the second half Dartford moved up a gear. With the game level Ryan Hayes won a free kick from what looked an impossible angle but nonetheless the winger went for goal. With help of a deflection Hayes gave Dartford the lead and with two minutes remaining captain Elliot Bradbrook scored a brilliantly placed curler into the top corner and made sure of the win.

The Darts boss recognised the excellent effort his side put in, he said: “We worked a good team very hard. As much as they had control of the game they had to put a lot of work in to do that. In the second half we were the fitter side, they probably couldn’t keep with us”.

Also on Saturday, Folkestone Invicta took part in an Isthmian Division One South fixture and they came away with a 2-1 triumph. Stuart King put Invicta in front after 51 minutes against struggling Croydon Athletic. With eight minutes remaining the game turned dramatic. Croydon’s George Landais equalised but with two minutes on the clock substitute Simon Austin won the game for Folkestone. The win for Invicta leaves them occupying sixth place in the Isthmian Division One South division and a point behind the playoffs.

In the first round of the Kent Senior Cup they needed extra time to defeat Faversham Town 3-2. In front of 107, Josh Vincent scored twice putting Folkestone ahead both times. James Everitt’s winner made sure of progression to round two.

Like Dartford, Folkestone spent a long period in the Southern League before their demise in the early nineties. Invicta joined the Kent League in 1991/92 and became Division Two champions. Another similarity between the two clubs is that a prolific goalscorer became manager and is still in charge today.

Neil Cugley manager of Folkestone Invicta

In 1997, former Dartford player Neil Cugley left Ashford Town to manage Folkestone Invicta. During Cugley’s reign he has experienced plenty of ups and downs. In 1999 the club returned to the Southern League and in 2000 Cugley achieved a second promotion to the Premier League, however after three seasons the club were relegated.

After switching to the Isthmian League in 2005, Invicta have yo-yo’d between the Premier League and Division One. In 2008, they went down on the final day and two years later were back in the Premier League despite a ten point deduction. Last season they finished bottom of the pile and returned to Division One again.

As Dartford progressed up the leagues and Folkestone flitted between divisions the last league meeting between the two clubs was in the 2003/04 Southern League East season. That year Invicta completed the double over the Darts with 6-1 and 1-0 victories.

The last competitive fixture between Dartford and Folkestone was the Isthmian League Cup clash in 2006. The tie ended 2-2, Anthony Henry scoring both goals for The Darts. After extra time the two clubs could not be separated and Dartford progressed 5-3 on penalties. It’s been almost six years since Dartford last drew Folkestone in the Kent Senior Cup. On that occasion Invicta won the tie 2-1.

The winners will play Tonbridge Angels or Sittingbourne away in the Quarter Final.

Did you know

In total, managers Tony Burman and Neil Cugley have been at the helm at their respective clubs for a combined 24 seasons

Neil Cugley is Invicta’s record goalscorer in one season when he scored 46 goals during the 1982/83 season

Since 1992, when Folkestone Invicta gained senior status, they have never won the Kent Senior Cup but have been runners up on four occasions in 1998/99, 1999/2000, 2003/04, 2009/10

The Darts have won the Kent Senior Cup ten times. Between 1930 and 1935 Dartford won the competition four times in five seasons.

Dartford v Dover Athletic

The Darts return to Conference South action against Kent rivals Dover Athletic on Saturday hoping to repeat last season’s corresponding fixture.

The Darts celebrate one of four goals in last season's meeting

Over the Easter period Dartford put in one of their performances of the season by brushing Dover aside in an excellent 4-0 victory. Charlie Sheringham gave The Darts the lead heading home a Lee Noble corner mid way through the first half. Tom Champion made it two nil in the second half and moments later Danny Harris acute lob made it three. The lead was extended to four when Sheringham scored his second to complete the triumph.

James Rogers was involved in Dartford’s victory last season and he may face his former club again after missing the fixture in August. Jon Wallis will also hope to play a part this time at Princes Park after being on the receiving end for Dover in April.

At The Crabble in August the two sides played out a 2-2 draw with Dover twice coming from behind to share the spoils. Sheringham opened the scoring in seconds but ex Dartford loanee George Purcell equalised for The Whites. Elliot Bradbrook made it 2-1 in first half injury time from a Richard Graham cross and on the hour Billy Bricknell earned Dover a point.

Dartford enter the Kent derby unbeaten in six league and cup matches after Tuesday’s replay win against Eastbourne Borough. Tony Burman spoke to PURE DFC about the replay, he said: “It was difficult for the guys first half because Eastbourne played at lot of people behind the ball. We’ve got to keep our concentration for a long time but having said that we got to make something happen”.

The Dartford boss was keen to address the first half difficulties at the break, he added: “We said at half time we had to keep our cool and we have got to make something happen. Whether that is a deflected shot or whether it comes off someone’s backside, or anything we need to make something happen ourselves.”

Tom Champion after his goal on Tuesday night

In the second half The Darts took the lead through Champion’s long range effort and from then on Burman was happier with his side, he commented: “It was a great strike, as soon as that happened and we went a goal up they started to move around a lot better, the passing got a little bit better and we had a little bit of belief, a little bit of confidence”.

After a second goal from Danny Harris, Eastbourne Borough were awarded a dubious penalty. Former Dart Carl Rook scored and The Dartford boss was far from impressed with the officials, he said: “The referee in my opinion had a howler, it was a bad decision for the penalty. To me the fellow has fallen over his own man and I can’t believe that the linesman can’t help the referee out in that situation he must have seen it”.

With full attention now on the home league match against Dover Athletic, Burman is asking for the fans to play their part, he added: “I really hope that the supporters get behind the team on Saturday. It is a big game to look forward to and with that support I’m sure the players will react and put in a good performance”.

Dover Athletic have changed manager since our visit to The Crabble. Martin Hayes was replaced with former football league striker Nicky Forster at the end of September. The Whites travel to Princes Park on the back of three straight defeats, two against Boreham Wood. The recent run of results have been Forster’s toughest test so far having drawn one and won four in the league matches prior their current poor form. The Whites enter Saturday’s derby six points behind Dartford and four points shy of the playoffs.

Forster has added Argentinian midfielder Agustin Battipiedi and winger Leon Redwood both from Brighton and Hove Albion since Dartford last played them in August. Kyle Vassell signed with The Whites from Brentford to bolster Dover’s attack.
