Dover marksman promises more of the same

TOMMY TYNE: "I know I can score goals here"
TOMMY TYNE: "I know I can score goals here"

THE season is drawing to a close at just the wrong time as far as Dover Athletic striker Tommy Tyne is concerned.

Tyne made it five goals in six matches with the opening goal in last Saturday’s 2-1 win over Cambridge, a strike rate which suggests that Whites’ search for a proven striker for next season may not be quite so urgent after all.

The 22-year-old former Millwall player pointed out: “People tend to forget that I missed the first two-and-a-half months of the season through injury, and then after I was only playing sporadically around Christmas and in the early part of this year.

“That affected my match fitness, but now that I have had a run in the side I am feeling sharper and taking the chances that are coming along.

“I have taken a bit of stick off the crowd, but the reception I got when I went off on Saturday was really nice and I know I can score goals here. I have done that at every level I have played at.”

Tyne, however, may be rested at Weymouth on Saturday after having to come off near the end of Monday’s 1-0 win over Hednesford because of a hamstring injury.

Manager Clive Walker said: “Tommy has been carrying the injury for a few weeks, and I may rest him on Saturday because I can’t afford to lose him for the rest of the season.”

Matt Carruthers is again ruled out by his rib injury but Kenny Dyer could return after missing Monday’s game because of a calf strain.

Whites are at home again on Easter Monday when they take on Havant & Waterlooville (3pm).
