The Pure DFC Punter – 20th August 2011

The last minute goal against Eastbourne Borough certainly saved this page’s blushes as the over 2.5 goals comes in.

The Darts take on Hampton and Richmond Borough on Saturday, and the Darts will be looking to exact revenge for two defeats against H&RB last season, but most of all, the 4-0 defeat at Princes Park back in February will have hurt the defence (of which, three of the Darts back line took some part in).

The records against Hampton and Richmond Borough don’t make for pretty reading for the Darts, with the only victory coming in 1970!

Hampton and Richmond Borough’s away record last year was more impressive than their decidedly average home form, winning six away, and drawing a further seven.

So far…

Hampton and Richmond Borough have been unfortunate, some would say, so far this term – a last minute winner for Bromley, and a late penalty from Woking have ensured that our visitors are still pointless after two games.

Key stats:

Dartford haven’t beaten Hampton and Richmond Borough since 1970, with three consecutive defeats (two in the league last year, and once in the FA Cup).

Darts have won seven of their twelve fixtures on this day, with seven also containing over 2.5 goals.

Bets of the match:

The effect of Dartford winning their first two games has been noticed on the markets, with Dartford massive favourites to win with all bookmakers (8/15 being the best, with Blue Square and Paddy Power).

The one bet that interests is with Victor Chandler as they quote odds of 21/20 on Dartford to be leading at half-time, and with the past two games having the Darts leading at the break, this is the bet we’ll be going with.
