Dover Athletic boss Chris Kinnear not about to dwell on draw in Vanarama National League derby at Bromley

Dover boss Chris Kinnear says he has no complaints about the penalty that ended the impressive winning record for his side at Bromley’s Hayes Lane on Saturday.

Whites had won on each of their past four visits to the ground before the Vanarama National League Kent derby ended 1-1 after Bromley scored a rebound from an 88th minute penalty to earn a share of the points.

Nicky Deverdics put Kinnear’s side ahead in the 70th minute before Bradley Goldberg equalised after Tyrone Sterling had brought down Anthony Cook.

Goalkeeper Mitch Walker dived to his left to save Goldberg’s initial effort before he calmly slotted home the rebound.

There was no question it was a penalty admitted Kinnear.

He said: “It was definitely one. He tackled him from behind and Tyrone said after it was a penalty - that’s the way it is.”

Earning just a point left Kinnear disappointed but he wasn’t about to dwell on it.

He said: “I didn’t think we did great and the lads are not happy with the way things went but that’s gone now and we cannot do anything about it.

“It’s no good getting all frustrated, and I told the lads that, we’ve got to regather ourselves and go again because we’ve got another game on Monday.”

Whites host Boreham Wood at Crabble (3pm).
