One Man Team? Dover Boss Is Having None Of It

Chris Kinnear insists Dover Athletic are anything but a one man team.
The experienced manager says their season is about more than just the goals of Ricky Miller.
The Dover striker is the National League’s top scorer and after helping himself to another 2 goals on Saturday he has 39 in all competitions so far.
Dover beat Gateshead 2-0 this weekend and they are in the mix for the final playoff place with Aldershot, who currently hold the last spot, and also Barrow who lost this weekend.
But Kinnear has laughed off suggestions that they are a one man band.
“Not at all, it’s not all about Ricky Miller,” he said. “He’s had a great season but look at the players around him on Saturday.
“I don’t think you can just say Ricky, they were all excellent. The lads get him in position to score then we let him do his little bit!
“Defensively we have restricted one of the best sides in the league to one chance. It’s a team effort.”
Kinnear admits Dover’s run in is difficult – purely because they play clubs still fighting for points.
He added: “It’s difficult and it looks as if every game will have something riding on it.
“We try to win every game and we’ll continue to do that. If not, you give the lads an out.
“We don’t set points targets and we won’t again in the last month of the season. We’ll just take each game as it comes and with a bit of luck on our side that will be enough.”
