Chelmsford City are one game away from National League Premier football after defeating Dartford, over two legs, in the National South play-offs yesterday.
Having been held 0-0 at home in midweek, the Clarets made no mistake yesterday, running out 2-1 winners, and will now travel to Ebbsfleet for next Saturday’s final
Rod Stringer’s side took the lead on 70 minutes through Louie Theophanous, after good work from Chris Dickson to set him up.
Dickson then grabbed Chelmsford’s second with five minutes to go, capitalising on an error in the home side’s defence before finishing well.
Duane Ofori-Acheampong pulled a goal back for the hosts, but it wasn’t enough as the Essex side booked their place against Ebbsfleet, who defeated Hampton & Richmond 4-2 on aggregate.
