Three wins out of three represents an impressive start to Chris Kinnear’s second spell at Crabble but don’t expect the new Dover Athletic manager to pick out any individuals for special mention.
Following last Saturday’s 3-0 win at Weston-super-Mare, which moved Whites back up to third in the Blue Square Bet South, Kinnear insisted: “I know it sounds easy to say but Saturday was another good team performance. We scored three goals, kept a clean sheet, the midfield played their part by creating chances and providing an extra barrier in front of our back four and the substitutes did well.
“We worked out how we were going to play and everyone stuck to it. It’s part of the ethos we want to instill into the players that everybody needs each other.”
The victory at Weston – Whites’ ninth league away win of the season – was achieved thanks to a double strike from winger Ricky Modeste and a somewhat fortunate effort from skipper Ian Simpemba, whose header should have been saved.
Whites face another trip to one of the promotion hopefuls on Saturday when they take on Boreham Wood but one player who will again be missing is Daryl McMahon.
A X-ray on his foot has revealed no fracture, the midfielder is still having problems and went to see a specialist this week.
