After listening to the commentary last night, it sounds like we earnt a hell of a lot of respect from the Hosts and it goes on once again to prove that we have a high chance of holding our own in the Conference South.
Last night's game was a massive test for some of our players to go 120 minutes and still hold their nerve to step up to the spot.
And you know what? We get to do it all again on Saturday, cause I believe Sudbury will be a tougher game!
PROUD and very unlucky are the only ways i can describe my feelings on last nights epic contest..
If last nights 2nd half and Extra Time was a boxing match Dartford would have been stopped! We played some exceptional passing football that truly tore the Darts apart, they just could not live with what we was throwing at them.. We hit the cross bar twice and the post, there keeper made 2 decent stops also.
Pens are always a lottery and unfortunatly we were the ones to lose out on this occassion. Special mention to Jason Hallett who when came on was immense and had the bottle to take a pen, this after hearing the sad news that his Father only has a short time to live. Respect Jason!
I just want to personally thank all the players for there effort and passion that last night made the 100 or so travelling Gulls fans very proud! They could not have given anymore!
As for our travelling Army, we were truly superb and again showed what decent and passionate fans our club has! Totally out sung the home fans all night!
We move on now and look forward to the Trophy game with AFC Sudbury on Saturday
