Deadly Dartford striker Alex Wall delivered a welcome reminder of his talents as he struck twice in front of assistant manager Terry Harris in the Darts’ 5-1 thrashing of Woking on Tuesday night, writes Mark Wood.

The Town coach was at Princes Park during the week to see the ‘raw’ on-loan Luton striker star against the Cards.

He said: “I went. He did ever so well. Alex is Alex at the moment.

“He’s raw, he frightens the life out of defender because of the power of his running as he did on Tuesday at Dartford.

“He took his goals ever so well and contributed for the third and fourth goals I think.”

Young midfielder Jim Stevenson is also doing well for the Darts, as Harris continued: “He’s given them a boost as has Jim Stevenson as well. Jim did a very, very good job in the middle of the park on Tuesday against Woking.

“It’s an ideal opportunity for them to play games, because we haven’t had any sort of games of late that we could play these guys in anyway really.”

But Wall’s unlikely to win a recall to Kenilworth Road unless he goes right into their team.

Harris said: “I think he’s there for another month, although I do think we’ve got a 24-hour callback on him anyway.

“But for us to call him back it would need for him to go into the side, otherwise it defeats the object.

“He needs to play, and at this moment in time he’s playing very well. Talking to the Dartford people over there they love him because he’s what they require at this moment in time.”

Senior players Shaun Whalley and Solomon Taiwo are also getting good minutes under their belt with midweek games for Luton hard to come by because of the weather.

“Solly played his first game I think on Tuesday for Aldershot and I think he’s been there three weeks already, it’s crazy,” said Harris.

“Shaun Whalley’s played two games or three games I think for Telford, so they’re all getting games and obviously that will help them and they will come back in better shape anyway.

“That’s the whole idea that they go out and do well and then they come knocking on your door and say ‘listen, I’m back, I’ve played eight, nine, 10 games, I’ve got X amount of goals, I’m ready,’ and it puts another problem on John Still’s desk and quite rightly so.”

Young full-back Jerome Jibodu went out on loan to near neighbours Dunstable Town on Thursday, but Town are taking one loan at a time.

Harris added: “When they’re up to come back we’ll discuss it then really, but at the moment the whole idea was for these guys to go out.

“No-one in the near future is going to go out to my knowledge anyway, but that may well change Monday anyway.

“We may well try and get a couple of the youngsters out, just to get them games.

“Just purely because we can’t get midweek games at the moment. Whereby we may play West Ham, or Palace, or Millwall, or Charlton on a Tuesday in a midweek friendly, because of the conditions at the moment we can’t do that.

“These guys are training every day, but they’ve got no end product, they’ve got no games. In an ideal world we can get same games sorted in the near future subject to the weather.”
