Dover Athletic boss Chris Kinnear says his team is still a work in progress after beating Woking

Dover boss Chris Kinnear was not about to rest on his laurels on Saturday, despite watching his side register consecutive Vanarama National League wins for the first time this season on Friday night.

Stefan Payne's double in the 2-0 win against Woking in front of the BT Sport cameras at Crabble saw Kinnear's side move five places up to fifth ahead of Saturday's fixtures.

But that didn't mean Kinnear was about to sit back and take it easy on a rare Saturday off.

He was out looking at a player - his team-building is not yet complete.

Kinnear said: “When do you ever feel complete?”

"It was a great week for us with the wins at Eastleigh on Tuesday and against Woking but we are still a work in progress - there are still players I would like to bring to the club.

"Our performances this week prove we are making progress but we are not quite there yet.

"We are creating a lot of chances but we are still not clinical enough. There's a lot more to come from this group of players."

As for the win against Woking, a third consecutive against the Surrey side, Kinnear was happy his side had finally banished the live TV blues.

"You have to be happy after losing on every appearance before now," he joked.

"Seriously though, I think we more than deserved to win against Woking.

"We are going alright with only two defeats in 13 games but we cannot afford to get carried away - there's a long way to go."
