A goal from each of the Bradbrook brothers and a header from Rory McAuley was enough to condemn Wrexham to their fourth home league defeat this season with a 3-1 loss.
Elliott and Tom Bradbrook both hit the back of the net either side of McAuley’s header, whilst Reds striker Louis Moult was able to pull one back for the home side.
It was the visitors who took an early lead through captain and top scorer Elliott Bradbrook after five minutes. The midfielder showed quick feet in the box to strike the ball past a helpless Dan Bachmann.
A golden opportunity to equalise landed to Wes York after a nice pass from Connor Jennings however Darts ‘keeper Jason Brown was quick off his line to help his side retain the one goal lead.
Brown was the standout performer in the first half for the away side when he did superbly to deny Andy Bishop and then James Pearson with two quick saves.
Just after the half hour mark, Wrexham midfielder Jay Harris and Bradbrook collided heads on the edge of the box. Rob Evans came on to replace the midfielder for his first match action since suspension.
Dartford managed to double their lead on the hour mark when an unchallenged McAuley headed in from close range.
Moult, who had replaced Mark Carrington just before the second goal, was able to pull a goal back when his controlled volley found its way into the bottom corner to make the score 2-1.
‘Keeper Brown was in fine form again to keep his side in the lead when he saved well with his feet to deny Jennings the chance to equalise.
Defender Blaine Hudson had a great chance to level the scores in the 85th minute, but his volley was hit straight at the Dartford shot stopper.
Dartford sealed the three points when Tom Bradbrook curled in a lovely strike to end the game 3-1.
Kevin Wilkin’s side are back in action in six days time with an away clash with Southport.
