Chris Kinnear admits there’s nothing positive about Dover’s plight and that he is hurting every bit as much as the fans, report Kent Online.

Saturday’s 2-0 home defeat to Solihull Moors sent Whites to the foot of the National League table just 12 months after a 4-0 home win over Chester had moved them up to second.

Kinnear admits it’s not a position Dover expected to be in, adding that it’s as tough a period as he’s experienced in his time as manager at Crabble.

He said: “None of us want to be where we are but the fans don’t feel it any more than me, we all feel it the same.

“Thirty two years ago I first started here, so why would they feel it more than me? It hurts, I don’t want this club to be in this position but we’ve just got to try and move on.

“It’s not easy down at the bottom but that just means you have to work a little bit harder. It’s not positive at all, in any shape or form but there are reasons why we’re in this situation.

“We lost players, you’ve got to replace them but everyone’s got to do that. We’ve all just got to work together and try to move forward.”
