Dover striker Ben May will need a fitness test before Saturday’s home game with Eastleigh after suffering a groin strain during Tuesday night's 3-0 win at Truro City.

Defender Ian Simpemba is doubtful along with May (pictured) because of the knee injury which ruled him out of the midweek game in Cornwall.

New signing Moses Ademola, who made his debut as a second-half substitute in the 2-1 win at Billericay last Saturday, will get a quick reunion with his former Eastleigh team-mates, as will Daryl McMahon who joined Whites from the Hampshire club in September.

Dover moved to within two points of the Blue Square Bet South summit after the victory at Truro.

Nicky Forster’s side extended their superb unbeaten away record over the past year with their second success on the road in four days, following the win at Billericay.

Forster, whose side made the 750-mile round trip by plane from Manston, said: "It wasn’t one of the best performances we’ve put in this season but we stood firm when Truro put us under a lot of pressure in the first half, scored three goals and kept a clean sheet so I have got to be delighted with the night’s work."
