Dover Athletic manager Chris Kinnear says improvement in home form is vital in the Skrill South play-off push

Dover play their third Skrill South home game in a week on Saturday when Boreham Wood visit Crabble on Saturday.
Whites fans will be hoping it will be a case of third time lucky after seeing their side pick up just a point from the first two games.

The weekend’s 0-0 draw with Eastbourne Borough was followed by a 1-0 defeat against Farnborough in midweek and there needs to be no margin for error against Boreham Wood if the Whites want to keep hold of their play-off berth.

The sides drew 2-2 in January but Dover boss Chris Kinnear wants three points this time around. He knows his side needs to be up for it from the kick-off.

Kinnear said: "They are a half decent side, and we must not be complacent."     

The manager's son,  Chris Kinnear Jnr is available after he completed the second game of his suspension – for picking up 10 yellow cards – on Tuesday night.

Sean Raggett (knee) is still ruled out.

Kinnear admits the team's form at Crabble is something that certainly needed addressing.
He said: “We are so keen to impress at home that we get frustrated if things don’t go our way in games.

“We start throwing people forward to try and do something about it and we have got caught on the break like Farnborough did to us. There is a case of us being a little naive at home."
