*BS*Dover Athletic travel to last season’s Vanarama Conference South champions Bromley in an eagerly anticipated Kent derby on Saturday.*BF*
Whites left it late to claim all three points against Altrincham on Saturday, but Sean Raggett’s late goal was enough to claim all three points and the second win of the campaign.
Chris Kinnear’s side will be aiming to make it five games unbeaten, having not lost since the first match of the season against Barrow.
Bromley, also known as the Lillywhites, have many ex-White’s in their side including Ben May, Moses Ademola, Sean Francis and Gillingham loanee Callum Davies.
Striker Ademola, who scored 15 league goals in Bromley’s promotion season last campaign, has scored two goals so far this season and is their top scorer.
Bromley bought in former Portsmouth defender Ben Chorley last week and he made his debut in their last fixture against Halifax.
For Dover, Kinnear is still without Ricky Modeste, Tom Murphy and keeper Andy Rafferty who are all suffering from injuries. New signing Jaydon Gibbs still waits to make his debut and is likely to start on the bench for Whites.
*BS*MORE ON THE OPPOSITION*BF*
Bromley have made a steady start to their opening season in the Vanrama National League picking up four points from their opening five games.
In their opening fixture, the Lillywhites battled back from a goal down to beat Wrexham 3-1. Ex Dover defender Sean Francis scored their equaliser that day.
However Bromley suffered three straight defeats after, losing away at Woking 2-0, Grimsby 4-1 then a home defeat to Braintree 2-1.
Last Saturday the Lillywhites threw away two points against Halifax, as they doubled their 1-0 advantage in the last minute of normal time, only to then concede two stoppage time goals giving Halifax their first point of the season.
*BS*LAST TIME THEY MET*BF*
The two clubs met most recently in Dover’s promotion season in 2013-2014, with the sides playing each other three times in that season.
Kinnear’s side suffered a 2-0 home defeat to the Lillywhites the weekend after bowing out of the FA Cup second round against Milton Keynes Dons.
However Whites picked up an impressive 4-0 win at Haynes Lane in March, with Bromley topping the table at that time. Goals from Richard Orlu, Tom Murphy, Barry Cogan and Moses Ademola secured the points.
The teams also battled it out in the Kent Senior Cup semi-final with Dover prevailing 3-2 thanks to a late double from Elliot Charles.
