As the race for Conference 2 qualification hots up, Dover boss Richard Langley has had his job made more difficult by suspensions for three of his key players.
Captain Andy Arnott will be ruled out for four matches following his dismissal at Weymouth. He received a two match ban for the red card and a further two matches for collecting 10 or more cards this season.
Danny Chapman, who missed the first six matches of the season through suspension and a further three matches in January for a sending off at Weston-super-Mare, takes his tally into double figures with a two match ban for his dismissal at Weymouth.
Both Chapman and Arnott will begin their suspensions next weekend when the Whites visit Chippenham in the league. Midfielder Jamie Day serves a one match suspension when Athletic host Hinckley United at the Hoverspeed Stadium tomorrow.
