Dover Athletic boss Nicky Forster plays down title talk

13 December 2012

Dover Athletic manager Nicky Forster has moved quickly to play down comments from Whites fans that the chase for the Blue Square Bet South title has now developed into a three-horse race.

With the top three teams all winning last Saturday – including a 2-0 success for Dover over Eastleigh at Crabble – they have opened up a 10-point gap over the three clubs in joint fourth place.

But Forster, whose side have now won five successive matches, insisted: "It would be disrespectful of the other teams and also complacent on our part, to think that is the case, especially as Boreham Wood and Chelmsford (two of the teams in joint fourth) have three matches in hand on us."

Forster (pictured) added: "We have just got to keep putting points on the board, which is something we are doing well at the moment.

"Let’s be honest, we are a team in form and playing well, third in the league and two points off the top spot and we should enjoy these moments."

Whites will bid to extend their year-long unbeaten away record on Sunday when they take on Hayes & Yeading.

The match has had to be put back 24 hours to Sunday because Hayes & Yeading groundshare with Woking, who are hosting Welling United in an FA Trophy tie on Saturday.
