It was Dartford's captain Elliot Bradbrook who controversially rescued a point for his side on Saturday in a 1-1 draw with Maidstone.

Bradbrook's equaliser on 82 minutes was originally ruled out for offside before being awarded when referee Ian Cooper reversed his linesman's decision.

The Dartford skipper was slightly downbeat at the final whistle however: "I'm a little bit disappointed to be honest. I thought that we were by far the best side. I thought that we played good football throughout really.

"We hit the bar and the post three times and we scored a goal and on a different day it could have been a lot more. I'm pleased with the draw, happy not to lose and to keep our unbeaten run going but I am a little bit disappointed."

When asked if Dartford's three game unbeaten run can help kickstart their sticky start to life in the National League South, Bradbrook replied: "I think so. There really was not much wrong with what we were doing early on.

"We were creating lots of chances and it just was not going for us. It is easy to make excuses and say that this that and the other were not going for us but it really was just that little bit that was missing for us.

"The last few games has seen it start to come together. We have shown great spirit again, coming from 1-0 down after I thought we should have been ahead before that, so things are starting to go our way a little bit and it is pleased."

Bradbrook praised the support of the fans and hoped to give them some success to cheer about in the near future: "It is fantastic. It is easy to feel sorry for ourselves but you have to realise that these are guys that are travelling the country and pay their money to watch us play.

"They have had a tough time over the last few years just like we have and hopefully we can win some games and start pushing up the table. It is just as much for them as it is for us."

The captain also praised the turn around in the dressing room since the start of the campaign: "It was a brand new dressing room. We were a bit low on confidence coming into the season after what has gone on in the last couple of years.

"We got together as a group and said that there is a little bit missing but it has turned our way in recent games and that is good.

"I have always said that the league is so tight and realistically we were looking at a top half finish. I cannot see why, if we can keep this run going, we cannot reach a play off place."
