Chris Kinnear is prepared for a tough game when his side travel to their “bogey club” on Saturday.
Dover Athletic make the trip to Boreham Wood in the National League, a place where they have not won since 2010.
Boreham Wood have won their last four meetings with Kinnear’s side and have scored 13 goals in the process.
Kinnear said: “It will be a tough game. Before I came and rejoined they said it was our bogey club.
“We are going to go there and try and win, which you should do but they are a decent side there’s no doubt about that.
“We’ve lost one in our last seven or eight and it has been that close in all the games and could have got three points. We have had the chances and it’s about converting the chances.”
The Whites are on a poor run of form in the league having only won once in their last 10 games. Uncharacteristically, they have also conceded nine goals in their last five games
Kinnear believes the 4-3 win in the FA Trophy against Marine on Saturday will give his side a much needed boost.
He said: “It gives us a bit of confidence. Everyone used to come to Dover and think they could turn us over and now everyone has that little bit extra when they play against us because we have done so well.
“It’s concerning. If we are scoring the defenders are getting the plaudits and if we are conceding the forwards need to do a little more to help them out. It’s a team thing and we have to solve that.”
Kinnear also hopes to add a new signing to the squad before the Boreham Wood game after loanee James Alabi is reportedly about to sign for Ebbsfleet United.
He added: “We are looking to strengthen and improve but we always try and do that. Hopefully we can.
“We would like to have got someone in by Sunday but it doesn’t work like that. They have option and are asking for this and that. If it’s good for the club and they want to be part of it we will definitely sign people.”
