Welling United kick off the Easter weekend with a trip to Dover Athletic on Good Friday.
With last weekend’s home c lash against Hampton & Richmond Borough falling foul of the weather, it has given the Wings a few more days to recuperate and Warren Feeney will hope to have some sidelined players available again for the trip to the Crabble.
Tuesday evening’s London Senior Cup meeting with Charlton Athletic will have given the Wings’ boss food for thought with first-team regulars Antony Papadopoulos, Kyrell Lisbie and Cameron Andrews all putting in eye-catching shifts, while Medy Elito got 45 minutes under his belt as he made a return from injury.
Welling will, however, be without the suspended Stefan Payne, who has one game remaining, while Amadou Kassarate still must serve three more games of his ban.
Dover currently sit in 16th position in Vanarama National League South with 45 points and 12 wins, 11 draws and 17 defeats from their 40 games played, so far.
Sitting two points and two places above the Wings, Welling can leapfrog their opponents with a win on Good Friday.
The Whites come into the game off the back of a 3-1 win at Braintree Town last time out – their first win in six after a run of four straight defeats in March.
Warren Feeney: “There’s six games to go, 18 points to play for, and we want to go as far as we can, starting with a win on Friday. It’ll be another tough game, but it’s one we need to go into with confidence.”
LAST TIME OUT
The Wings and the Whites shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw at Park View Road back in September.
Welling took a deserved lead through Manny Parry in the 77th minute, only to be left frustrated by Chike Kandi’s leveller four minutes later.
