Chris Kinnear said his Dover side need to learn how to manage games to the end after conceding a late goal to lose 2-1 at Ebbsfleet on Monday.

Whites looked like they had snatched a point four minutes into stoppage time when Keanu Marsh-Brown had scored an equaliser from the spot after Sean Shields’ opener. Within 60 seconds Fleet went up the other end and scored the winner through Drury.

Kinnear said: “It’s just typical of us to grab the ball and run it to the halfway line. They (Ebbsfleet) were gutted and I think they may have taken quite a while to get back to kick-off.

“We’ve given away a silly foul and the chap was not marked, which was ridiculous, and it wasn’t a great free-kick either but that’s part and parcel of football. They will be thinking they shouldn’t have given a penalty away.”
