Vanarama National League
League Position: 23rd (P13, W2, D1, L10)
Last Result: Dover Athletic 0-2 Solihull Moors
Manager: Andy Hessenthaler
Top Scorer: Sam Wood (Two goals)
Our next opponents currently sit bottom of the league after what has been a difficult season on and off the pitch. They have had more games off than any other side having played just the 13 matches so far this term. Both of their league wins have come on their own patch, with victories over promotion contenders Notts County and mid-table Eastleigh. The Whites are currently on an eight-game winless run, with just a point against 10 man Boreham Wood to show for their efforts. With the Bees also struggling for form, the hosts will surely be targetting this one as a must-win game.
Despite their poor form, the hosts aren't conceding lots of goals, however, they are also struggling to score goals, with just eight to their name all season. With that in mind, it looks set to be a tight and close encounter in Kent tomorrow evening.
The Bees looked to have secured a respectable point on home soil against Altrincham, until an injury winner for the Robins, provided a sucker punch to the Tim Flowers' side. Flowers' side certainly improved in terms of organisation on Saturday but know that results have to change as they look to kick on up the National League table. The chance to visit Dover provides the Bees with one big opportunity to attempt to kick start their campaign. They'll be looking to be more imposing in the final third, whilst trying to solidify the Dover attacking threat, in what is a must-win game for both sides.
Whilst Saturday's result was a set back for Flowers' men, they know that a big win in Kent will surely lift the confidence going into a continued busy period of fixtures. With the ingredients off the pitch coming together nicely, hopefully, Flowers' can find the recipe for success on the pitch against the Whites.
Myles Judd is available for selection once again after he was sidelined through suspension for Saturday's clash with Altrincham. Whilst Michael Petrasso his return to action from the bench on Saturday, with JJ Hooper and Alfie Pavey also completing the full 90 minutes.
Anthony Wordsworth won't take part in the match with the Whites but should be back amongst the squad and available for this weekend's visit of Torquay United.
WHAT'S BEEN SAID?
"We've got 29 massive games now, it's not just Dover. Every single game for us is our World Cup Final, there are men in there, I do not expect to see any moping around. It was our fault we didn't see the game out, it's been done and we have to move on. We have to go down there, roll our sleeves up and fight for this Football Club."
"Obviously they are on of my former Clubs. They are a big Club (Barnet), they are in a bad position like, there's some really good people there. They are in a position they shouldn't be in, they are big big Club. Tim has gone in there and to turn things around, he'll come and make things very difficult for us. They are a big carrot for us, if we win we'll go above them and that might just kick start our season."
