Dover Athletic made it three wins in a row as they beat Barrow 3-1 at Crabble on Saturday afternoon.

Aswad Thomas’ neat finish had Whites in control at half time and Ross Lafayette’s clever chris kinnearlob over visiting goalkeeper Dixon doubled their lead. Sam Magri scored his first goal for Whites with an accurate header, before Ross Hannah’s cool consolation penalty for Barrow late on.

The way we are playing attacking football is now a bit scary for other teams.

Manger Chris Kinnear praised the team’s forward display. ‘The lads were exceptional and the way we are playing attacking football is now a bit scary for other teams. The left back crossed for the right back to score, so no one can say we play defensively.’

Kinnear also believes he has a squad with the know how to handle the big games. ‘We have added one or two, but most of the team have now got a bit of experience from playing the likes of Crystal Palace and featuring in the play offs.’

Athletic have a long trek to Torquay next week, but Chris is looking foward to facing the side with only one win to their name this campaign thus far. ‘It’s a big club and I love everything about them, but we are going there to try and take two points off them.’

He added. ‘They are doing well in some of the games, but are not getting the results, so we are taking nothing for granted.’

Chris concluded by praising his backroom staff as Dover continue to have a clean bill of health throughout the squad. ‘A lot of other sides have injuries, but we have hit the ground running and Callum the physio and Faz are doing a great job.’
