The Crusaders' 0-0 draw at Princes Park was a real positive according to Bobby Wilkinson.
Hungerford are hosting today and they welcome Weston Super Mare for a 7.45pm kick off.
Wilkinson wants his players to build on a good first day result by backing it up tonight back in front of the club's supporters.
"We were happy with Saturday," said the manager.
"Make no mistake Dartford will be one of the favourites to go up again. They are always near the top and I think they will be again.
"We defended well but tonight things change a little and we're expected to follow it up.
"Weston won't be easy. They will be looking to put the result right from the first day of the season.
"We have a great record and home and on Monday nights so long may that continue."
