Dover Athletic boss Chris Kinnear admits he’s happy with how his new-look have performed at the halfway point of the National League season.

The Whites looked to be in for tough campaign last summer, having lost a number of players – but have defied the odds superbly.

Dover had lost their previous two games prior to Saturday’s game at Bromley and looked set for a third until a late goal salvaged a point.

And Kinnear has down asked for his players to step up a gear for the next half of the season.

“At the begining of the season we were one of the favourites to go down in everyone’s books,” he said.

“We have turned that around but we just have to worry about the next game. That’s what we’ve always done and the way the team has gone into games.

“They just want to see what they can do in that game and then worry about the following one.

“So I am pleased with them so far. If we had been here with this many points and this close to the top at this stage at the beginning of the season, we would have been happy.

“There’s still a little bit more to give with the players and I am sure they will do, as they have a lot of desire.”
