*BS*WHITES have been boosted by the news that goalkeeper Glen Knight is set to have his hand out of plaster on Friday 1st December.

*BF*The experienced former Welling stopper snapped a tendon in his hand in a non-footballing accident and has been in plaster for nearly two months.

Glen revealed this week to Justin Allen in an interview for WhitesLive On Demand that DAFC sent him to a Great Britain Olympic physio to examine the injury and advise the Dover keeper. The verdict from the physio was that the hand is healing well and can soon come out of plaster. Glen will then get fit and ready to come back into contention for the Dover No 1 shirt.

Dover boss Clive Walker also expects a return to action soon for experienced midfielder Danny Chapman. ‘Chappers’ has been out of the team with a injury since Whites’ previous trip to Sittingbourne’s Bourne Park back in August.

Initial fears that sciatica was the problem were found to be false but Chapman has been suffering back and muscle pains when attempting to run.

Clive Walker said: “Danny’s been out for long periods before and then suddenly he comes back into the team.”

Both Walker and Chapman are hopeful that this will be the case again shortly, as Chapman has done everything to keep up his fitness since August and is itching to get back playing football again.

Both Knight and Chapman have been frustrated at being out of action for so long and have been scouting for their manager to keep busy and contribute towards the club during their injuries.

*IS*Apologies for the lack of a preview for the Maidstone match. This was due to illness.*IF*
