Dover Athletic suffered the shock result of the day in Blue
Square Bet South on Saturday as they lost 5-0 at home to
Basingstoke – their first defeat in 12 matches since Chris Kinnear
took over as manager.
Basingstoke went in front after just 13 minutes through Manny
Williams and then 10 minutes later, a mistake by Ian Simpemba,
returning to the Whites line-up after a five-match suspension, gave
Simon Dunn the chance to make it 2-0 at half-time.
Third-placed Dover started the second half in much brighter
fashion only for a poor clearance from keeper Mitch Walker to
present Williams with his second goal after 69 minutes.
Basingstoke then rubbed it in with further goals from Dunn (79
minutes) and Delano Sam-Yorke (88 minutes) to leave the Crabble
It was just the result Kinnear’s side didn’t want ahead of
Tuesday night’s visit to second-placed Salisbury City.
