Dartford 4 Blues 0

Blues’ final Vanarama South away game of the season ended in another heavy defeat as they went down 4-0 at promotion-chasing Dartford.

It was a better performance than the 5-0 hammering at Wealdstone on Easter Monday, but Kevin Watson’s side again went home empty handed with a ninth straight league defeat.

The visitors had the first chance when Evans Kouassi looked to be through on goal, but he over-hit the pass to Aaron Greene on the left.

The Kent side took the lead in the 13th minute when Andy Pugh converted from close tamger after the Blues failed to clear their lines.

It took 12 minutes for the home side to double the lead when Elliott Bradbrook got a run on his marker and converted the corner with his head.

Sam Ford and Solomon Taiwo both had chances to end Blues’ goal drought but after Taiwo had seen a free-kick go wide in 57th minute, Dartford killed the game off on the hour mark as Ofori-Acheampong rose higher than any defender to head into the top corner from a cross.

Greene fired over shortly afterwards – by the end of the game Blues had gone 854 minutes without a league goal – but Dartford wrapped things up in the 85th minute when Harry Voss appeared to be fouled and substitute Alfie Pavey was left free to head home.

Blues XI: Voss, Richefond, Williams, Taiwo, Adebowale, Rodgers, Ronto  (Kabeya), Everitt, Ford, Kouassi, Greene. Unused subs: Fagan, Rogers, Harris.
