Promotion the aim for Kinnear

Chris Kinnear is looking to finish the job he started years ago after returning the management hot seat at Dover Athletic.

The 58-year-old parted ways with the Whites midway through the 1994/95 campaign for personal reason, having been at the club for ten years.

Kinnear joined the Dover from Margate earlier in the week, taking over the reins at the Crabble from Nicky Forster.

The experienced manager says is he looking to steer the Blue Square Bet South side to promotion, but admits they need to go on a winning run to secure a place in the top flight of non-league football at the end of the current campaign.

Kinnear told Kent Online: “We’re in third but I know people have games in hand and we might not be in the same position when they have caught up. All we can do is try and win every game until the end of the season.

“I’m looking to the future not at the past. It’s not about what I did the first time, it’s about what I’ve done lately and I’ve been successful at Margate.

“The season’s not over. The players will want success now, so let’s try and do it now.

“If we can win a load of games and win the league, brilliant. If not and we build for next year then so be it.

“I have a bit of unfinished business here. When I left before I just wasn’t able to do the job due to some family problems.

“I had a couple of young kids to care for and I just couldn’t give as much to the job as it needed.”
