Dover Athletic 0 Dorchester Town 0
Dover Athletic need one more point to secure a place in the Blue
Square Bet South play-offs following their goalless home draw with
Dorchester on Saturday.
But Whites will need to produce better performances in their
remaining games, starting at Staines on Tuesday night, if they are
to ultimately earn the second promotion spot behind Welling.
Chris Kinnear's side started well enough against Dorchester with
Ricky Modeste and Lloyd Harrington both forcing good saves from
visiting keeper Jason Matthews while Daryl McMahon saw his curling
effort strike the woodwork.
Dorchester, however, gradually took control of the midfield area
and they almost snatched the lead on the stroke of half-time when
Ian Simpemba cleared off the line after Whites keeper Mitch Walker
had spilt Sam Malsom's fierce effort.
And in the second half a sluggish looking Dover created few real
chances before Dorchester went close to grabbing all three points
in the dying seconds when their captain, Mark Jermyn, fired
straight at Walker when well placed.
