Dover Athletic v Heybridge Swifts

Dover manager Andy Hessenthaler is determined to remain focussed on leading Whites' Ryman League Premier Division title charge despite the speculation linking him with the vacant managerial post at Watford.

Hessenthaler admitted this week that he "would be interested" in the Watford job if the Championship club decided to make an approach to Dover, but he insisted: "I am enjoying it at Dover, and what manager wouldn't with a nine-point lead and a game in hand? I just want to focus on making sure we don't slip up against Heybridge."

Hessenthaler warned that Saturday's game is a "classic banana skin situation" because the Swifts are bottom of the table. "After our great win at Staines last week, the last thing we want to do is to slip up at home this Saturday," he said.

Midfield Jon Wallis is set to return to the squad after a hamstring injury but centre half Ollie Schulz (ankle) remains doubtful.
