Dover Athletic midfielder Daryl McMahon makes impression on new boss before departing with injury
Daryl McMahon only lasted 38 minutes
of Dover’s victory over Truro last Saturday but in that time, the
midfielder confirmed what Chris Kinnear already knew.
Whites’ new manager said: "We missed
Daryl after he went off because he’s a quality player and it
was worth getting 35 minutes or so out of him."
McMahon, who joined Dover from
Eastleigh last September for an undisclosed fee, has been suffering
with a metatarsal problem in his foot and is now waiting for the
results of an X-ray.
He said: "I have had this injury for
about three weeks and I have had to drop out of training two or
"It was touch and go whether I would
play against Truro but we were down to the bare bones and so I had
to go out and play for as long as I could."
He added: "It was good to get the
three points after the five defeats in a row we’d had, although it
was a little bit closer in the end than we wanted it to be.
"Before the game, the manager said to us, ‘Just go out there and
enjoy the game, work hard together as a team and try to get the
ball forward as quickly as we can.’
"We did that and it made for a great start for Chris."
