Returning Dover skipper Kevin Lokko was delighted to open his seasonal account against Notts County on Saturday, but admits everyone in the squad needs to share the burden of goalscoring.

Lokko’s 57th minute strike at Crabble was his first of the season and looked like earning Whites the points until visiting substitute Kristian Dennis headed a last-gasp equaliser in the 2-2 draw.

The 23-year-old defender netted six times in 39 National League starts for Dover last season and admits a similiar return would help take some of the pressure off the club’s strikers.

Lokko – starting for the first time in five games due to injury – said: “I’ve been struggling with my ankle, it’s been a bit of a complicated one but I’m happy to be back playing and happy to get on the scoresheet as well.

“I’m buzzing to score, I hadn’t scored this season so it was good to get off the mark.

“We all need to chip in. You look at last year we had myself, who chipped in with six or seven goals, Mitch Brundle and others, we all chipped in.”
