UP NEXT – SLOUGH TOWN

Dover head to Slough looking to bring back three valuable points on their travels.

Mitch Brundle and his side will be looking for a positive result on the road this Saturday as the Whites head to Slough to face Slough Town. The Rebels are only a couple of places and three points worse off than us so it will be a crucial game for both teams who will be looking at pulling away from the bottom of the pile.

The gaffer could face selection headaches for the first time with Jake Goodman serving a ban for his red card against Worthing and Myles Judd could also miss out through an accumulation of bookings.

Slough are unbeaten in five matches since Boxing Day, winning two and drawing three. Even at this stage of the campaign, a win here will be vital to push on for the remainder of the season. Goals have been hard to come by for the Whites but Brundle promised that they would be working on this in training in the lead up to the game.

Unfortunately there will not be any DAFCLive Text for this match so we will try and keep you updated as much as possible on the socials. We hope to see as many of you there as possible.
