Dover hope to kickstart their season in their familiar home surroundings after a slow start to the campaign, report Kent Online.

Whites have picked up four points from their opening five games in the National League and conceded 12 goals. This has included 688 and 624 mile round trips to Gateshead and AFC Fylde respectively.

Dover will hope to pick up points on Saturday at home to Andy Hessenthaler’s Eastleigh after a disappointing trip to Fylde on Saturday where they lost 4-0. Assistant manager Jake Leberl said: “We’ve had a couple of long away trips and it’s always a big ask of the players to do that all in a day.

“We have been different at home. We have done well in both the Wrexham game we lost and the win against Havant. So we will be looking for three points against Eastleigh.

“Going to Fylde is tough and there is no reason to panic yet.”
