DEAN PALMER is looking forward to not only enjoying his football – but also being a winner.

The Whites defender, like all his team-mates, cannot believe that the club are still scratching around for their first away league win.

He said: “We pretty much outplayed Hampton and Eastleigh. They are two top sides and there’s no way either of those teams should have got anything out of the games, let alone win them.

“The boys are playing some entertaining football at the moment – and that’s a real Steve Browne trademark – and if we can start scoring, then the fans are going to be coming back to watch Dover in their droves.

“A lot of teams in this division try and muscle you out of games – and smash the ball long. We pass the ball around a bit and can give as good as get on the physical side of things. too.

“The club get good crowds and it’s a great stage to play. We know that the fans will come out in numbers if we start to get some results. They want to watch a winning team and hopefully we can continue winning at home.

“We have outplayed the top teams in the division so I have no doubt in my mind that we will start converting these performances into wins.”

Palmer joined up with Whites from Hemel Hempstead and explained: “I wasn’t enjoying my football there and Steve gave me a call, asking me to come down and take a look at Dover.

“Once I saw the lovely ground, the set-up and stuff, my mind was made up. I had to go for it. I am really enjoying my football at Dover – but now want to start enjoying a few wins.”
