Dover boss Chris Kinnear has no intention of tinkering with his line-up ahead of Saturday’s FA Trophy first round clash at Conference North side Lowestoft Town.

Whites are on an 11-game unbeaten run in all competitions and Kinnear sees no need to make any changes.

He said: “I’d love to say we are going to win the FA Cup but realistically we know that won’t happen.

“The FA Trophy gives us another chance to play at Wembley if we reach the final.

"That is every incentive for us to keep sticking to what we are doing now and who we are doing it with.

“The players are really hungry to keep playing and stay in the side and why wouldn’t you be?

“You don’t go changing a winning side for the sake of it.

"We’ll be treating it like any other game. We’ll be playing to win regardless of who we are playing.”

Defender Sean Francis (groin) and midfielder Chris Kinnear jnr (knee) battled through Sunday’s FA Cup win at Cheltenham but both are determined to play in Suffolk.

Meanwhile, defender Sean Raggett could also come back into the squad after a toe injury ruled him out of the FA Cup clash.

Lowestoft, who are 16th in their division, came from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 at Solihull Moors last Saturday.
