Dartford was relegated from the National League in 2015, and in five of the last seven seasons, they were finished in the top 6 on the table and qualified for the playoffs. They had a very good team in the previous two seasons and were one of the favorites for the promotion, but in both seasons, the championship was canceled because of the coronavirus.
This season they finished in 4th place with only two points behind the 3rd placed Ebbsfleet, so they must go into the play-off quarter-final. The teams in 2nd and 3rd place go directly to the semi-final.
Dartford is in very good form. They have three wins in the last four games, and they have scored 16 goals in those games. The defeat against Braintree at home in the second to the final round was the result that spoiled everything. If they won that game, Dartford would finish 3rd, above Ebbsfleet.
They go into this game against Chippenham after a 7-2 win against Eastbourne away from home, and Eastbourne is not a team from the bottom half of the table; they are 6th and also participating in the playoffs.
In National League South playoff, you play one game in the quarter-final and also in the semi-final, and a better-ranked team is a host. So, Dartford is the host of this game.

Chippenham came to this league in 2017. Until this season, they never finished above 13th place, and they are one of the biggest surprises in National League South this season.
They clinched a place in the playoffs with two amazing victories in the last two rounds. Firstly they beat Hungerford in the 92nd minute, and in the last round, they beat direct rival Havant away from home in a game where only three points give them a place in the top 7.
Chippenham is in a run of five games without a defeat with four wins, and the impressive fact is that they played all last five games against the teams in the top 10 at that moment.
They are a very tough opponent when they play away from home. They usually play on the counter-attack, and their games are often with not many goals. Only six Chippenham’s games away from home were finished with over 2.5 goals this season.

Dartford vs. Chippenham Town Prediction
We think that Dartford is a favorite to win this game and go into the semis of the playoffs. They are the better team and they are very good at home. This game will be very tough. Chippenham usually plays like this when they play away from home, and now a stake is much bigger because this is a playoff game.
We will go with a bet on goals, and if you like a full-time bet you can go with Dartford to win. We think that this game will be a tough one, a typical playoff game and we suggest a bet on under 2.5 goals. The odds are great and worth a shot.
