Dover Athletic manager Chris Kinnear says Skrill South opponents Maidenhead United are a unknown quantity

Dover’s play-off hunt will continue at Maidenhead United on Saturday and boss Chris Kinnear knows his side will be heading into the unknown.

He said: “They (Maidenhead) are a funny side – you just never know what you are going to get when you play them.

“They swap and change things around all the time, meaning it’s always difficult to play against them. You can be sure that it won’t be an easy trip.”

Maidenhead have lost their past two league games – and both were at home.
They slipped to a 1-0 defeat against Bath City on Saturday and then lost by the same scoreline to Boreham Wood on Tuesday night.

A doubt for the clash is defender Sean Raggett after injuring a hamstring in the warm-up at Bromley on Tuesday night.

Kinnear said: “We will just have to wait and see how he is."

Despite the 4-0 win, boss Kinnear is not about to get carried away by it – he’s been around too long for that.

He said: “It was a great result and one I am pleased with but we are still a work in process.

“We didn’t play well against Basingstoke on Saturday (the game ended 1-1), so we’ve got to find that consistency in our game."
