Anthony Jeffrey thinks he can be a match winner for Dover Athletic in promotion push

By Josh Fordham

Anthony Jeffrey thinks he can be a match-winner for Dover as they push for promotion in the final third of the National League season.

Jeffrey, currently on loan from Sutton United, has made nine appearances in the league but has yet to find the net.

The winger is unavailable for The White’s next match against his parent club on Saturday but he said fans can expect more from him for the remaining games of the season.

He said: “I’m not 100% yet but these last 14 games of the season I will be a match-winner. It’s about getting back to full fitness as on my day there’s not many people who are as dangerous as I am when I’m fully fit.

“I would have loved to have played and prove a few people wrong but I’m sure the boys can do it.

“Hopefully the goals will start coming though.

“I have been fighting fitness and injuries and trying to get going. I’m getting there.

“I’m feeling dangerous and teams are wary of me and it’s about bringing goals now. We just need to keep going now.”

The 23-year-old made 10 appearances for Sutton at the start of the season, mostly from the substitute’s bench, and joined Chris Kinnear’s side in November.

His initial loan spell has been extended until the end of the season.

He said: “I had a couple of offers and a couple of clubs sniffing around. I believe with this team we can win the league still.

“We have got a good run coming and we aren’t scared of anyone.”

Jeffrey started in Dover’s 4-3 defeat to Leyton Orient in the FA Trophy on Saturday.

He said the players were frustrated after the game not to hold on to a draw after getting themselves back on level terms after going 3-0 down.

He added: “We rode our luck a bit but we didn’t deserve to lose. It was a good game but a tough game as they had a lot of experienced players, some who have played in the Premier League.

"It’s frustrating but it happens in football and you just have to go again and make sure it doesn’t happen next week.

“We were disappointed to concede four goals and we could have scored more but to score three at home and not win was disappointing.”
