Dover Athletic boss Chris Kinnear targets another win in the Vanarama Conference clash at Alfreton Town

More news, no ads


Dover are on a roll after winning twice in a week and boss Chris Kinnear is determined to take the momentum into Saturday’s Vanarama Conference clash at Alfreton Town.

Kinnear’s side beat League 2 side Morecambe 1-0 in the FA Cup on Saturday and backed up that impressive win with another 1-0 success against Braintree Town at Crabble on Tuesday.

Dover have already beaten Alfreton this season when the then on-loan Luton Town striker Ricky Miller netted in the 1-0 success at Crabble in September.

Kinnear sees no reason why his side can’t complete a double.

He said: “We are playing well enough, we are looking solid all over the park and our defence has been brilliant. Teams haven’t looked like scoring against us and that’s scary.

“If we beat them (Alfreton), we’ll be mid-table.

"And if we then get results in our next two home games against Forest Green and Nuneaton, well, there will be people starting to talk about play-offs.”

But one of the stars in Kinnear’s defence, goalkeeper Andy Rafferty, could be in doubt for Saturday’s clash.

He fractured his nose in the Braintree game.
