Dover face a testing trip to in-form Chelmsford City in the FA Trophy on Saturday with manager Nicky Forster insisting that his side do not fear anyone.
Chelmsford, second in Blue Square Bet South, pulled off the shock result of the FA Cup first round last weekend with their 3-1 win over League 1 Colchester, in which former Whites striker Donovan Simmonds scored twice.
But confidence is high at Crabble after the excellent 3-0 win at Eastbourne Borough, which was Whites’ fifth win in seven matches in Blue Square Bet South – the best away record in the division.
Forster said: "We don’t fear anyone at the moment and, although Chelmsford are in good form, we will go there in a positive frame of mind."
The Eastbourne win saw Dover jump back up to sixth place and Forster (pictured) added: "It was a professional performance. We were strong physically and creative."
Much of that creativity was provided by winger Ricky Modeste, with Forster saying: "Ricky caused them lots of problems with his pace, which is why we brought him here."
Forster voiced similar comments about striker Calum Willock who, after making a slow start to his Crabble career, is now beginning to live up to the reputation he forged with Ebbsfleet. "Calum has been working hard and is now getting his rewards," said Forster.
