Dover Have Their Tails Up But The Spell's Not Broken

After securing their first victory since August last weekend, Dover Athletic will suddenly feel like they can take on the world!

It’s been a tough season for the club at the foot of the table. Last month popular Chris Kinnear was replaced and it’s taken a while for things to improve.

But with a new manager comes new hope and Andy Hessenthaler has at least got the winning feeling back in the Whites' players again. Watch highlights here.

Saturday’s 2-0 victory over Maidenhead, their first three-point return since the second Saturday of the campaign, sets them up perfectly for a trip to Bury this weekend in the FA Cup first round.

Now Hessenthaler hopes that they can turn to the corner by causing a surprise against the League Two club.

“On Saturday I was so pleased for the players,” he said. “They really deserved that win.

“It’s not been an easy season here but all I ask is that they give me 100 per cent. If they do that, I’ll keep them up.

“Everyone had a good game but we can’t just think we’ve broken the spell and that everything fine now and results will come.

“We need to keep the ball rolling. There’s nothing better than an FA Cup upset to add some confidence.”
