Hawks boss Lee Bradbury is under no illusions of the task ahead of his side tomorrow when in form Dover Athletic visit Westleigh Park.


The Whites have picked up 11 points from their last six games and are one of the divisions form teams, and have already beaten the Hawks twice this season.


However, the Hawks have seen Westleigh Park as somewhat of a fortress over recent times. Lee Bradbury’s team have lost just one home league game since mid October and will be looking to continue that trend and edge further away from the relegation zone.


And the Gaffer knows the test ahead of him tomorrow as sides meet for the fourth time this season.


Bradbury said: “We’ve both had good form recently, both have been trying to get some distance between themselves and the bottom, there’s a lot of hard game for the teams around us on Saturday, so all we can do is get our three points and hopefully come out the right side of a Dover V Hawks game.”


With Dover’s recent form line, Bradbury believes that a game against Hess’ team is as tough as any other in the league, irrespective of league positions.


“We are playing one of the best teams in the league at the moment. We’ve given them some close games so far, we’ve met three time, so we’ll have another go at them, come and try to beat them at home, where we have been good this season, will be good and we’re excited about it.”


From the gadge seen over the past few encounters, the gaffer is expecting a physical tussle tomorrow against the Kent Based side.


“They’re big, strong, physical, experienced. They’re good at set pieces and they’re fit, now gone full time and in the last ten minutes of games have gone and robbed us twice.


“If we do get our noses in front tomorrow, I’ll be looking for a more dogged, determined, team performance, a bit like Boreham Wood last week where we have to defend properly and take our chances.”
