LV BET Preview Pools’ Trip To Dover

Victoria Park, Hartlepool United

The FA Trophy may be taking centre stage this Saturday, but there’s one National League offering left on the table.

Dover Athletic and Hartlepool United have been urged to make the most of the others’ break in play and push up the table.

Hartlepool have already done just that in the past few days.

On Tuesday they took advantage of being the only game and earned a big three points at home to Eastleigh.

Now they travel from the North East coast to the Kent coast and face a Dover side who have exactly the same number of points on the board.

The Whites are the division’s joint best away side but at home they still can’t quite get it right. They have already endured seven losses in front of their own fans but did beat title chasing Bromley 3-0 on their own patch towards the end of 2019.

The winner won’t see a reason why they can’t reach the play-offs so it’s a big one at the Crabble.
