Chris Kinnear got off to a winning start in his second spell as Dover Athletic manager with a 3-2 home win over Truro City on Saturday.

But the former Margate boss, who replaced Nicky Forster at Crabble last month, saw his new charges make hard work of disposing of their Blue Square South bottom-of-the-table visitors despite leading 3-0 at half-time.

Defender Tyrone Sterling, making his Dover debut, headed Whites in front after just six minutes and it looked plain sailing for the hosts when Ian Simpemba and Callum Willock added further goals before the break.

But, with Dover having lost their previous five matches, their brittle confidence was exposed as Truro staged a determined fightback.

The Cornish side struck twice in four minutes early in the second half through Cody Cooke and Kieffer Moore and Dover then had to endure some nervy moments before securing their first victory since mid-December.
The victory keeps the Whites third in the table.
