Dover Athletic assistant manager Steve Brown lifts lid on 'lowest' week at the club for manager Nicky Forster
Dover assistant manager Steve Brown says he and Nicky Forster
have experienced the lowest week since they joined the club, but
retain the support of their chairman.
Defeats at Farnborough on Saturday – when Whites were 5-0 down
at half-time – and 1-0 at Dorchester on Tuesday night have
made it five straight league defeats for the Whites.
It is the club’s worst run since they lost six straight in Ryman
League, Premier Division in August and September 2004.
Brown insisted the club’s fortunes would turn and said it was
“not yet a disaster” as Dover were still third in Blue Square Bet
South and seven points ahead of the play-off chasing pack.
He said: “The chairman has been fantastic. He’s scratching his
head about what’s happened but he’s been nothing but
“We’re not naive, we know it is a results business and we’ve not
been good enough but the chairman knows it is not a disaster yet.
He can look at the table and see a couple of results and things
will look a lot better.”
Brown added: “The first half on Saturday was the lowest point of
our time at Dover, without a doubt.
“The morale and the confidence is pretty low but we need to
stick together and stop the rot. It will turn around but it hurts
at the moment.”
