Dartford earn overdue win over Kidderminster Harriers

PUBLISHED: 10:52 23 September 2013 | UPDATED: 10:52 23 September 2013

Dartford ended their four-match winless run with a 3-0 success over Kidderminster Harriers on Saturday.

Tony Burman’s side had lost three of their four previous matches but thanks to goals from Jason Prior, Elliot Bradbrook and Danny Harris, they eased to victory.

The first came on 34 minutes when Prior bundled the ball in from close range. The finish was the 24-year-old’s first for the club after signing permanently in the summer.

Darts’ skipper Bradbrook scored his third goal in five games when he fired home a loose corner, before Harris rounded things off with an accomplished finish just after the hour mark.

Even though Kidderminster represent one of the division’s front-runners, Burman believes his side could have scored more.

Speaking after the match, he said: “It probably could have been more, we had a few chances that could have been put in, but it’s nice, it’s given us a lift for a few days.

“You can’t beat working hard as a team, I’m really pleased for the players.”

Dartford now sit in 18th in the Skrill Premier and will be hoping they can maintain their good form, when they play Southport on Saturday.
