Paul's view on Dover

27 September 2018

Unfortunately it wasn't possible to get a video interview following Tuesday's game against Dover, but manager Paul Doswell gave his views to the website on Thursday morning.

''Clearly the loss of Jamie, and two minutes later conceding a harsh penalty, had a massive impact on the game. We started really well and fully deserved our two goal lead, but Dover have a certain way of playing and both their goals came from the long throw similar to last season. They must be the tallest side in the league and after their first goal we couldn't deal with the constant long throws and numerous free kicks which get launched into your box.

Honestly it's hard to play against and it always seems to be a fight for knock downs and we didn't compete well enough in the second half. Having said this we still had two good chances with Charlie Clough and two great strikes from Nicky and a third goal would have won the game.

We now have to move on to a massive challenge on Saturday against an excellent Orient side who will be backed by a huge crowd, and these are the games you look forward to in what is a hugely competitive league. I honestly think we are massively overachieving once again, and our start to the season has been fantastic. 50 points is my first target and that's the most important target.''
