Dover Athletic boss Chris Kinnear refusing to look too far ahead

Chris Kinnear is refusing to get carried away by the run Dover have put together since he succeeded Nicky Forster as manager.

Tuesday's 1-0 home win over Bromley extended Dover's unbeaten run under Kinnear to eight matches, and, with Welling United losing 1-0 at Bath on the same night, it also meant that Whites made inroads into their Kent rivals’ big lead at the top of Blue Square Bet South.

However, Kinnear (pictured) said: "I know it’s a cliche but we are just going to try to win as many points as we can and we are doing great.

"That’s six wins and two draws and we’ve just got to keep that going and see where we stand after Easter. It’s pointless looking any further ahead than that.

Staines, Dover’s opponents on Saturday, have only played once in the last month because of postponed matches and Kinnear said: "I hope that means they might be a bit rusty.

"But everyone wants to beat Dover because we get the biggest gates and are a club who want to go places and Staines will be no different."

Midfielder Barry Cogan was sidelined by a groin injury against Bromley while striker Billy Bricknell also joined the casualty list after coming off just before half-time with a slight muscle tear in his thigh.
