Dover suffered a second straight 1-0
home defeat as struggling Staines snatched the points at Crabble in
Blue Square Bet South on Saturday.
Having seen his side lose in
injury-time against Tonbridge four days earlier, boss Nicky Forster
brought in Lloyd Harrington, Calum Willock and Ricky Modeste for
the unavailable Danny Webb, Daryl McMahon and Billy Bricknell.
As they did against Angels, Whites
created plenty of chances but were made to pay for not taking
Modeste failed to turn in an early
Barry Cogan free-kick, while Moses Ademola was denied by Staines
keeper Jack Turner.
Willock headed a Tom Wynter cross wide
before Ademola fluffed his final ball after a fine run but it was
the visitors who broke the deadlock on 36 minutes when David
Wheeler volleyed home.
After the break, Dover keeper Mitch
Walker kept the deficit to one with a couple of good saves while
another Town chance was fired over.
Modeste and Ian Simpemba saw penalty
shouts waved away before Dean Rance had a shot deflected wide
and Harrington’s header from a Cogan cross was held by Turner as
Dover suffered a third straight league defeat.
