Dover Athletic – The Crabble Fortress?

The Crabble Fortress? Lets hope so! Due to other work commitments it was the first time for me covering the new look Dover Athletic under new boss Andy Hessenthaler. To see them notch up their forth win this season, was a real bonus. However, I was commissioned to cover the game for Hartlepool United, awkward! What follows are just a few of my favourites in no particular order.

The ‘new look’ Whites line-up look sharp and finally look like a cohesive unit and certainly committed.

Here are a few more action pictures from the game:

However, there was a moment late in the game when Hartlepools keeper Scott Loach went forward for a late corner and very nearly nodded the ball in! (I still have that to get ticked off my list of shots to get in my career!)

Desperate to level the score in the dying minutes Hartlepool’s keeper Scott Loach goes forward for a corner.

Dover get off the foot of the table still with a mountain to climb to avoid relegation. At least the #hessexpress is gathering speed!
