Dover centre-half Sean Francis says he considers himself dangerous and loves to pose a threat in the air to opposition defences when he goes up for a corner.

Southport discovered Francis was more than a threat during last Saturday’s Vanarama Conference clash at the Merseyrail Community Stadium.

After coming on as a first-half substitute for captain Craig Stone (ankle), Francis rose high to powerfully head home Nick Deverdics’ 70th-minute corner for Whites’ second goal, and equaliser, in the 2-2 draw.

Francis was thrilled to have helped his side earn their first away point since the impressive 1-1 draw at Bristol Rovers on October 4.

He said: “Everyone gets a real buzz out of scoring, regardless of what level you play.

“I don’t think there is anything like the feeling you get after you see your effort hit the back of the net.

“I scored eight or so goals last season so hopefully this one (it was his first competitive goal for Chris Kinnear’s side) will be the first of a few this season. I always back myself to get a goal or two.”
