Dartford 3-1 Nuneaton Town

Tom Bradbrook
Tom Bradbrook has scored six goals this season including one in the FA Cup

Three second-half goals gave Dartford a much needed victory over fellow strugglers Nuneaton.

Andy Brown put the away side in front, heading home Lucas Dawson's free kick.

Elliot Bradbrook levelled from the penalty spot midway through the second half following Gareth Dean's clumsy foul on Harry Crawford.

A Tom Bradbrook header put the home side ahead before Crawford's close-range finish sealed the win for Dartford.

The result all but relegates Nuneaton, who are now six points from safety with two games left and are set to be docked points after being found guilty of fielding an ineligible player.
