THE CONTEXT

The Stones' 1-0 win at FC Halifax Town on Tuesday night was their fifth league win on the bounce and moved them into 2nd position in the National League. Postponements have meant that this is Dover's first game in two weeks, and they currently sit in 22nd position following a 1-0 defeat against Altrincham on Halloween.

TEAM NEWS

Charlie Wakefield is on the last game of his three-match suspension and Charlee Hughes and Adel Gafaiti remain out on loan.

WHAT WAS SAID?

Dean Brennan: “Halifax were a good team with a good manager, who are well coached and Dover are the same. They have an experienced manager and good players, I watched them play Altrincham when we researched Altrincham last week and they're a good side. There's just no easy games in this league. We can't be over confident."

WHO TO WATCH FOR

Louis Collins: The 19-year old striker made the step up from Sevenoaks Town in the summer to join the Whites and has three goals in the last three games, which included an impressive brace and an assist away to Yeovil Town in the FA Cup. He has already caught the eye in his first month as a National League player and will prove a handful for the Stones defence.
