Dover Athletic manager Nicky Forster is preparing his players for a match this weekend which he knows is unlikely to go ahead.
Whites are due to play Truro City away but the Cornish crisis club have been told they will be kicked out of the Blue Square Bet South if they fail to convince the Conference of takeover plans by today (Thursday).
Truro are in administration after running up six-figure debts since their former chairman Kevin Heaney, who helped bankroll five promotions in six seasons, withdrew his backing.
Dover, of course, know all about financial crisis in their recent history but any sympathy there may be for Truro’s plight will be diluted by the fact the situation is causing Forster some extra unwanted headaches following last Saturday’s 2-1 FA Cup defeat at home to Bromley.
Forster (pictured) feels the Conference should be making their decision earlier, saying: "It’s a little bit unfair on us but what do we do? Do we book hotels and travel arrangements on the basis of them (the Conference) making a decision on Thursday? It’s something that’s totally out of our hands."
And a blank weekend would be far from ideal for Forster and his squad as they look to get last Saturday’s performance out of their system as quickly as possible.
