Concord Rangers are right back in to Vanarama National League South action this coming Tuesday (15th August) as the lads make the short journey over the Thames to face Dartford.
The Darts currently occupy 16th place in the early league standings, having had a start that has seen them share the points in all three games so far. Most recently they played out a 0-0 draw at Havant & Waterlooville this past Saturday, but have also had draws at home to Hungerford Town (0-0 on opening day) and away at Braintree Town (2-2 this past Tuesday). Although it’s early in the season, Dartford will be looking to quickly turn their draws into wins.
Concord Rangers have had one of each during their three league fixtures so far, losing on opening day to Wealdstone, then responding impressively with a 1-0 win at home to Hemel Hempstead last Tuesday. This past Saturday the Beachboys completed their collection as they drew 2-2 against Truro City, having been ahead 1-0 up until the 85th minute. Concord currently sit in 13th spot and will be looking to add more points to their early tally quickly.
The last time the two sides met, Steve Cawley scored the only Concord Rangers goal in a fierce 1-1 draw at The Aspect Arena back on March 11th of this year.
