Dover Athletic boss Chris Kinnear believes his side can go all the way to Wembley in the FA Trophy after beating Woking

Dover are just two rounds away from playing at Wembley in the FA Trophy final after beating Woking 1-0 in Tuesday’s third round replay at Crabble.

The reward for Chris Kinnear’s side is a home clash – Whites’ first of their FA Trophy campaign – against Conference South side Bath City on February 7.

Dover – who are into the quarter- finals for the only the second time in their history and the first time since 1998 – beat Bath three times last season, doing the double in the league and also beating them in the FA Trophy.

If they beat Bath, Dover will then face a two-legged semi-final with Wembley well within their grasp.

Boss Kinnear said: “It’s a fantastic effort to have reached this stage and, as I said last week, there is no reason now why we can’t go all the way and win it.

"It would be massive for the lads, the staff and the fans to experience to get to a Wembley final. There is no question about it.

"I'd love to do it too but it's not about me - it's all about the club as a whole."
