DARTFORD boss Tony Burman is intent on making Sunday’s FA Cup tie with Swindon Town as uncomfortable as possible for the League Two visitors.

The Darts are expecting more than 3,000 fans for the clash (2pm) as they plot their first win over league opposition since ousting Aldershot from the first round proper back in 1968.

Town are expected to sell their 800-strong ticket allocation but Burman is determined to ensure David Flitcroft’s side don’t feel at home at Princes Park.

“Swindon aren’t coming here to get a draw, they’ll be coming here to go through to the next round, but we’ll make it as uncomfortable as we can,’’ he told KentOnline “They (Dartford’s supporters) have a major role to play. Swindon have 800 tickets and we’re being told they will sell them so they’re not coming here to be quiet.

“It’s very important our fans get as loud as they can and get behind the guys.

“The supporters are close to the pitch here and when there’s a big crowd here, it’s a great atmosphere.

“I want it to be hostile in our favour and in the right spirit.

“It’s up to us to make it a day to remember. These games don’t come around too often and we go into the game in the right frame of mind with our recent results.

“But we’re up against a good team, we know that, and they’re in good form themselves.”

Dartford currently top National League South, nearly 50 places in the pyramid below Town, who nevertheless arrive determined to improve upon a horrendous FA Cup record that saw their last competition win come nearly six years ago.

Burman added: “We’ve got to put the pressure onto Swindon. It would be fantastic if we can pull it off.

“There’s always a couple of non-league clubs who take the competition by storm and you’re always hoping it could be your club. It may be time, who knows, for us to have a turn.”

Dartford have defenders Tom Bonner and Keaton Wood available after an injury and ban respectively but are without frontman Andy Pugh, who is banned after being sent off against Bath City last week, while striker Duane Ofori-Acheampong is still recovering from a knee problem.

Burman said: “We’ve got a good group of players who stick together and know what’s required of them. You can have all the good players that money can buy but if they’re not together, it’s a waste of time.

“They’ve got to grab the opportunity with both hands and enjoy it, give it their all but respect we’re playing against a very good side.’’
