Welling United 2-0 Tamworth

Second-half strikes from Lee Clarke and Loick Pires secured victory for Welling United against Tamworth in the Conference Premier.

Clarke sent two headers off target from Alex Dyer corners, before Lateef Elford-Alliyu saw his curling effort saved at the other end.

Pires secured the points with a powerful low strike late on.
