Darts News - Alan Towe’s The Line On Darts – Derbyshire v Dorset
After winning promotion to division one of the BDO Inter County Championships last season, Derbyshire have suffered a tough initiation losing all four of their opening games to leave them at the end of 2015 bottom of the table with 59 points already thirteen short of safety. However there are still five fixtures to play and four of the teams they will play are in the bottom half of the table, County Durham being the other opponents and they are in a mid table position. So all may not be lost as there are certainly games to be won and points to be gained to lift them from the foot of the table to safety and retain their division one status.
This coming weekend Derbyshire have a home tie against Dorset who are four places and seventeen points ahead of them but a win could well be the confidence booster required to kick start their season and see them climb away from the relegation zone.
