Rob Edwards believes it is just a matter of time until striker Kane Richards opens his AFC Telford United account.

Richards has looked lively since joining from Dover Athletic but has missed a few chances in his four games so far.

The 23-year-old has been playing up top with 19-goal Marcus Dinanga, and Edwards said: “We’ve been pleased with his performances, his work rate and quality in possession has been really good.

“He looks a real threat and got into some good areas (on Monday night as Telford lost 2-1 at Bradford Park Avenue). He was unlucky that a few shots got blocked.

“He wriggled out of a few challenges and looked really dangerous in the box. He just couldn’t quite get the shot away or it was a good block on their behalf.

“We feel that it will come, he’s just to keep doing it – going through the process. He’s working hard.”

Richards scored one goal in 14 appearances for Dover before signing for Edwards’ relegation-threatened charges.
