Notts County v Dover Athletic

Whites make a first-ever visit to Meadow Lane on Saturday on the lookout for their first league win of the year.

Nassim L’Ghoul‘s injury-time equaliser saw Andy Hessenthaler‘s men draw 1-1 at home against Hartlepool United last weekend, having started 2020 with a 3-0 loss at Bromley on New Year’s Day.

Noss County, currently unbeaten in seven National League matches and fifth in the table, beat Bromley 2-1 at home on 4th January.

Neil Ardley’s men drew 0-0 at Maidenhead United three days earlier, with wins at Solihull Moors (1-0) and against Maidenhead (3-0) coming just after Christmas.

NOTTS COUNTY PLAYER TO WATCH

Captain Michael Doyle might be looking to dazzle the home support again on Saturday.

The former Championship midfielder scored a spectacular last-minute winner from the half-way line in County’s 2-1 Buildbase FA Trophy victory against Dagenham & Redbridge last weekend.
