There will be a pitch inspection at the Hoverspeed Stadium on Saturday morning to assess the state of the playing surface prior to the Dr. Martens League Premier Division match between Dover Athletic and Hinckley United.
The pitch is currently very wet and the chances of the game going ahead depend on the overnight weather. The result of the inspection will be made available on the club answer phone (01304 822373) at around 9:00am.
Assuming the match goes ahead, Dover will be looking to cement their place in the top 13 and move a step closer to guaranteed qualification for Conference 2 next season. Richard Langley will also be hoping to avenge the 3-1 defeat at Middlefield Lane earlier in the season when his side performed very poorly in only his third game in charge.
Both sides are suffering from suspensions. The Whites will be without last season’s player-of-the-year Jamie Day, who is serving a one match ban for 5 yellow cards. Andy Arnott and Danny Chapman’s suspensions do not begin until after this match. Hinckley have defender Andy Penney and midfielder Jamie Lenton both suspended for one match also.
Athletic will also be without Jones Awuah who has been recalled from his loan spell by Gillingham. With Israel Amadi also having left the club, young reserve team forward Chris Wright is likely to be given a place on the bench.
