Form Guide

The Wood haven’t lost in the league since the defeat to Sutton United on Boxing Day.

An away draw against Leyton Orient and a win at Dagenham & Redbridge have bolstered the Wood’s playoff charge.

The win over Dagenham was the Wood’s last league fixture, with Andrade netting a brace, and Balanta also getting his name on the scoresheet.

The Wood currently sit in the National League playoffs, in sixth place, on 47 points.

Dover sit directly below the Wood in seventh, a win for Garrard’s side would see the points gap between the two, increase to five points.

Managed by 63-year-old Chris Kinnear, Dover lost last time out in the league, a 1-2 defeat at home to Aldershot Town.

From the Dugout – Luke Garrard  

“It will be a tough fixture; I said in my programme notes that he has got himself a very good squad there. I felt that because of the overhaul, in terms of players and the turnover of ins and outs, that they wouldn’t be as high up as they are.

“But, he has signed some very competitive players at this level and he plays them in a way that is different, but it gets him success.

“Chris Kinnear is hugely experienced and he has done a fantastic job there with Jake Leberl and Mark Newson.

“Like I said, they play a certain way and it is very positive in the manner in which they get results. You look at his league standings in the last four of five years, it has been very positive.

“For us though it is about continuing our league form, we are obviously four unbeaten since the turn of the year, with two wins and two draws and three very competitive fixtures away from home.

“To go and pick up five points was very pleasing and we can make the gap between us and Dover that little bit bigger, if we go and put three points on the board on Saturday.

“The boys know the task in hand and we have gone through it with them today, in terms of what we are expecting of Dover and how they go about their business.

“The boys were bright today, they were sharp and that is a reaction off the back of Tuesday night. We will park that and move on with the full focus of the league.”
