Dover Athletic boss Chris Kinnear will be hoping his side can put the disappointment of Tuesday’s 3-2 defeat at Nuneaton Town in Vanarama Conference behind them quickly.

He knows they need to regather and prepare themselves for the visit of Chester to Crabble on Saturday.

And Kinnear might have to make do without Tyrone Sterling, Matt Lock and Christian Nanetti after all picked up injuries at Nuneaton and are in doubt for the Chester game.

To add to that injury list, Kinnear’s Luton Town loanee, Solomon Taiwo, missed the game as he was having tests in hospital and may need his appendix removed.

Kinnear said: “The games are coming thick and fast so we are bound to pick up a few injuries. There is nothing you can do about it.”

As for the Chester game, the Whites boss said : “They are another experienced team who know what playing in this league is all about.

“We’ve got to make sure we are switched on from the start.”

Chester should include former Scotland striker Chris Iwelumo, someone labelled with producing one of the worst misses of all time.

He missed an open goal from three yards out in a World Cup qualifier against Norway at Hampden Park in 2008.

Kinnear admitted: “I don’t mind if he does that if he gets a chance against us,” he laughed.
