VIDEO: PLAYER REACTION

Saturday’s goalscorer Alfie Pavey spoke to the camera following Whites’ 2-1 win against FC Halifax Town.

PREVIEW: WHITES V HALIFAX

Whites will be looking to extend their unbeaten home run to three matches when they host Jamie Fullarton’s Town on Saturday.

Athletic drew 1-1 with Boreham Wood on Tuesday night to add to a 3-0 win against Braintree Town a fortnight ago.

However they entertain a team in good form this weekend.

The Shaymen are unbeaten in six National League matches, a run that has seen the West Yorkshire side rise to 14th in the division and nine points away from the bottom four.

A mean defence has been one of the main reason’s for Halifax’s recent results and they conceded for the first time in just over 450 minutes in their 1-1 draw with Barnet on Tuesday night.

DAGGERS GAME REARRANGED

The date of our National League game at Dagenham & Redbridge has been changed due to international call-ups for three of our players.

Ricky Modeste, Kadell Daniel and Anthony Jeffrey will all be away, so the clash at The Chigwell Construction Stadium has been moved to Tuesday, March 26th at 7.45pm from the original scheduled date of the fixture, Saturday, March 23rd at 3pm.

The Vanarama National League International Call-Ups policy allows the club to postpone the fixture.

VIDEO: MANAGER REACTION

Boss Andy Hessenthaler has his say following Whites’ 1-1 home draw with Boreham Wood on Tuesday night.

 

PREVIEW: WHITES V BOREHAM WOOD

Dover will be looking to bounce back to winning ways in the National League on Tuesday evening.

Having been two goals ahead with twenty minutes remaining on Saturday, Andy Hessenthaler’s men lost 3-2 at Hartlepool.

However other results mean Dover are still four points ahead of the relegation zone.

Boreham Wood, four points ahead of Athletic in 17th on the league ladder, have an impressive record at Crabble and have won four of their last six matches at Whites’ home.

Luke Garrard’s men recently ended their own recent poor record on the road.

Wood won 2-0 at Bromley earlier this month to end a 12-match winless streak away from home, started after a 4-0 win at Sutton United back in September.

Home fans might recognise a couple of familiar faces when Wood arrive at Crabble.

Defenders Femi Ilesanmi and Manny Parry were with Athletic last season.  Both players featured in 45 matches each for Dover, with Parry scoring five times and Ilesanmi finding the net twice.
