Dover Athletic manager Andy Hessenthaler says his side were nowhere near the required performance levels in their defeat at Boreham Wood on Saturday.

The Whites were beaten 3-1 to end their perfect start on the road this season, having won four out of their four away matches before the weekend.

A brace from Kabongo Tshimanga put Luke Garrard’s side into a 2-0 lead in the first half, as Inih Effiong halved the deficit after scoring the rebound following his missed penalty.

Tyrone Marsh’s strike in the second half gave Boreham Wood their first home victory of 2019 and ended a run of six straight victories away from home for Dover.

“It was probably the worst we’ve played for a while to be honest,” Hessenthaler said.

“After going away from home and winning four games out of four, I didn’t really expect that.”
