Andy Hessenthaler will be taking charge of his 300th game as Dover’s manager in the National League South game against Chippenham at Crabble on Saturday.
He reaches the landmark after 140 games in his first spell when he was player-manager between 2007-2010 and 159 since he returned in October 2018.
Whites, unbeaten in their past two games following a win at Bath City and a draw at Chelmsford City last Monday, host a Chippenham team heading to Kent after expereinces the highs and lows of the game within a week.
They beat League One side Lincoln City 1-0 to reach the FA Cup Second Round for the first time in their history last Saturday before losing their National League South game at Cheshunt 3-2 on Tuesday, a game they led 2-0 at half-time in.
It was the Bluebirds fourth consecutive league defeat and it saw them drop into the bottom four.
