Midfielder Solomon Taiwo is a doubt on Tuesday after he pulled up with a suspected hamstring injury in the warm up last Saturday

Naby Diallo also saw red in the dying seconds of last Saturdays dramatic draw, but due to the differing suspension rules in the FA Trophy for Conference Premier and Conference South clubs, does not begin his suspension until Saturday and thus will be available for tonight’s game.
Striker Ross Stearn was a second half substitute and scored the Romans third goal and will be pushing for a place in the starting XI.
Lee Howells’ Bath City side currently sit 12th in the Vanarama Conference South, but have games in hand over the teams above them due to their FA Trophy cup run.
Bath, also known as the Romans, have been in decent form ahead of the game against Dover, having lost just once in their last seven games. In that run, Bath defeated table toppers Boreham Wood, however lost to 2-1 Whitehawk last Tuesday.
Bath have one of the best defences in the Conference south, having conceded just 29 goals to date. Only Ebbsfleet and Gosport have conceded less.
Manager Howells was named Vanarama Conference South manager of the month for January thanks to a great cup run and steady league form.
The last time Dover won an FA Trophy quarter final was in 1998 beating Barrow on penalties. If the teams cannot be separated after 90 minutes, extra time and penalties will come into play.
