Dover Athletic aim to prolong Vanarama Conference rivals Telford United's search for first win of season.

04 September 2014

Telford United are still searching to register their first Vanarama Conference win of the season since the Shropshire side won promotion last year.

Dover boss Chris Kinnear is determined to keep it that way when his side visits the second-bottom Bucks on Saturday.

The home side has drawn two games and lost the other four, including a 2-1 loss at fellow strugglers Dartford last Saturday.

Whites are three places, and two points above them, after a win, a draw and four losses.

Two of those defeats have been in the past two games, 6-1 at Woking and 1-0 at home against Kidderminster last Saturday.

But Kinnear is not dwelling on the past. He’s focused on getting a result at Telford, one that hopefully includes getting three points. He knows it won’t be easy though.

He said: “Yes, they (Telford) are doing it tough and you could say that because they are a bit like us.

“We both got promoted and we are both still learning about just how hard playing in this competition is.

“But now we need to start picking up points and the trip to Telford is as good a place as any to start.”
