The Whites head to Chippenham.

Dover are on the road this Saturday following a hat-trick of home matches, looking to forget Tuesday nights result against Cheshunt. Mitch Brundle’s side will face another lengthy trip, similar to Taunton a few weeks back, where the Whites came away with three vital points.

Dover received a bloody nose after the 3-0 defeat on Tuesday but there is always the next game to focus on for Brundle who was quick to point out to Kent Online Sport that the defeat is now put behind him. ‘You’re only two weeks away from being dragged back into it,’ said Brundle. ‘So we’ll just move onto the next one with a positive mindset. I get frustrated with these results. I could be really disappointed and really critical, but we always have our feet on the ground. It’s a real learning curve for us, especially me as a manager.

Stuart Nelson lept to the defence of his manager last week following the mention of the manager’s age but this time it was the Gaffer who was on the defensive when quizzed about his number one. ‘He does everything you could ask of a player. And he’s there to help. I’m 13 years younger than him but, any time I want to speak to him, I can speak to him. He’s been absolutely fantastic. He’s a very experienced professional and, to be honest, I love him. He does everything right.

He’s kept us in loads of games. With his experience, people listen to him. As a manager, you can say so much from the side but it’s also having players you can trust, and he trusts the team in front of him now. It’s a team that’s working hard and showing desire, commitment and passion. He’s one of those people that just demands that.’

The Whites drew 1-1 the last time we faced Chippenham back in November with Lee Martin seeing red before an Alfie Pavey goal levelled the game with 15 minutes to go.
