Whites players will not discover whether they will feature in the FA Cup clash at Stadium MK until shortly before kick-off on Saturday.

Dover have a fully-fit and available squad to choose from – with the exception of suspended Lee Sawyer – and boss Chris Kinnear admitted he has some tricky decisions to make over his starting XI.

He said: “We’ll do what we always do and announce the team before the game. There’s no point doing it early because you never know what might happen in the lead-up to the game, people might come down sick the night before, people might get stuck in traffic on the way to the ground. Anything can happen.”

Kinnear added: “I’m sure they all want to play in a game like this. I’d play them all if I could, they are all good lads. Liam Bellamy came on a scored twice on Tuesday, Ricky Modeste got 50 minutes after injury, Barry Cogan got a run-out.

"I don’t want to make anyone unhappy, but there are decisions to be made. I have to pick a side to give us the best chance of winning.

“Some are sure to be disappointed and everyone deals with stuff differently and we’ll deal with it. Some might want to talk about it, some might want to keep it to themselves.”
