Frustrated Dover manager Nicky Forster says that all of his squad are fighting for their places
By Kevin Redsull
Dover boss Nicky Forster has warned
his squad they are all fighting for their places ahead of
Saturday’s trip to Basingstoke.
Frustrated by another home defeat
after Whites were beaten 3-1 by Blue Square Bet South leaders
Salisbury last weekend, Forster (pictured) said: "We were outplayed
and outfought by a better team and I have told the players how
disappointed I am.
"We have got a strong squad and it
will be used and that means everybody, including the ones who were
sitting in the stands.
"They have all got a chance to stake a
claim in training (this week) for the Basingstoke game."
With the exception of striker Ben May,
who has now scored in five successive games, Forster admitted that
Whites’ performance against Salisbury left plenty to be
He said: "I would have thought that,
playing at home in front of our own fans, the feeling inside the
players both individually and collectively would have been that it
was a great opportunity to turn over the leaders but we didn’t seem
to show that."
Things did look up briefly after
Forster introduced wingers Jamie Smith and Ricky Modeste in the
second half and now the Dover boss has got to decide whether to
give one or both them a starting place at Basingstoke.
