On a windy day at the impressive Princes Park stadium Concord Rangers inflicted a small dent in the playoff hopes of their hosts.

Concord started brightly moving the ball around well, and they created an early chance for the tricky Ben Greenhalgh who's right footed drive was comfortably stopped by Deren Ibrahim. 
Greenhalgh was again to prosper from a slick Concord move when put in on goal, shifting onto his favoured left he struck low which Ibrahim did very well to get down and save. 

The Darts suddenly decided to join the party and took the lead against the run of play as a defensive error left Tom Bradbrook an opportunity he was not to let slip. A dribble, cut back onto his right then a beautifully curled effort into the top right corner to the delight of the Black and Whites.

The Blue clad visitors were setback but only momentarily when their top scorer Steve Cawley was on hand to rifle home a right footed volley from 30 yards which hit the top right hand corner at the speed of light leaving Ibrahim and the Dartford players stunned.
Cawley latched onto a Greenhalgh flick on cuffing a left footed volley just wide on the stroke of half time which saw the sides share parity on the whistle.

Concord were controlling the game from the centre of midfield through the excellence of ex Darts duo James White and Max Cornhill. 
The dominance of James White told the story in the end as he duly put the game beyond his opposition in some style. A neat right sided move found White in space and from 20 yards out he struck an unstoppable left footed rocket, ripping into the top left hand corner sparking wild celebrations amongst the Beachboys contingent.

The visitors continued to pick away at the wounded Dartford defence to no avail, before the game was nearly turned on its head in injury time. Andy Pugh chased a loose ball played backward with he and Concord Keeper Ben McNamara colliding, neither seemingly having won the ball, referee Degnarain waving no penalty to the disgust of the Darts following. 

Concord move up to 9th with the win and Dartford drop outside the playoff places to 6th.
