The Rebels stretched their unbeaten run to five matches last time out with an impressive win on the road against playoff-hopefuls, Aveley.

Debutant Tommy Willard opened the scoring in a tightly contested first half to hand Worthing a slender lead going into the break.

After the interval, Ollie Pearce bagged a brace to extend his scoring run – ten goals in seven consecutive matches. The first was a well-taken effort with his left foot that flew into the top left corner, while he scored his second from the penalty spot in injury time.

It was back-to-back wins for the Rebels and four wins in their five-match unbeaten run which cemented their second-placed position for another week with Chelmsford City dropping points along with league leaders Yeovil Town.

A midweek win for Maidstone has closed the gap between the Rebels and third place to 3 points.


The Opposition

The Whites have had a difficult campaign in 2023/24 and are currently bottom of the league table with 21 points from 31 matches and sit 12 points from safety having won just three matches so far this term. No side has drawn more matches than Dover this season, with their 12 draws only being matched by Taunton Town.

They did however complete a league double over Slough Town recently, beating the Rebels 1-0 at the Crabble after their earlier win at Arbour Park back in August.

The Whites booked their place into the Quarter Final of the Kent Senior Cup earlier this week with a 4-0 win over Beckenham Town.

6/2 – Beckenham Town (A) – Won 0-4
3/2 – Braintree Town (A) – Lost 3-0
27/1 – Slough Town (H) – Won 1-0
23/1 – Tonbridge Angels (H) – Lost 1-2
20/1 – Torquay United (A) – Lost 1-0
13/1 – Taunton Town (A) – Drew 1-1

Meet the Opposition


Previous Meetings

The Rebels made their National League bow when Dover last visited Woodside Road last August. Jake Robinson gave the home side the perfect start, scoring inside the first minutes of his debut but Lee Martin’s equaliser later in the first half meant the points were shared.

In the reverse fixture this season, the Reds put in a professional display and came away with a 2-0 victory.

Another significant trip to Kent came in the club’s run to the FA Cup first round in 1999 when Sammy Donnelly’s team overcame two-division higher Dover in the fourth qualifying round replay to set up a tie with Rotherham United.


Team News

Greg Luer and Joe Rye are edging closer to returns from their respective injuries but it’s unlikely that either player will feature for the full 90 minutes on Saturday.

Nicky Wheeler, meanwhile, will have to wait a bit longer for his return to action with a groin injury.
