WEYMOUTH'S crucial clash with Vanarama National League basement boys Dover Athletic on Saturday has been postponed.

Dover's squad has been subject to self-isolation after a Covid-19 outbreak.

The Whites have taken just six points this season and lie 23rd of the 23 teams in non-League's top flight.

Weymouth are in 21st, with nine points, but have played five games more.

In a statement, Dover said: "Our Vanarama National League fixture against Weymouth at Crabble on Saturday has been postponed due to our staff and players self-isolating in accordance with National League protocols and Public Health England guidelines.

"Revised dates for all our postponed fixtures will be confirmed in due course.

"Please stay home and stay safe everyone."

Weymouth could face a long Tuesday night journey for the rearranged fixture.

The development means Bournemouth - away to Oldham in the FA Cup - are the only Dorset side in action on Saturday amid the third national lockdown.
