Dover Athletic 3-0 Aldershot Town

Christian Nanetti scored his first goal for Dover Athletic to help them to a comfortable Conference victory over Aldershot Town.

Home keeper Andy Rafferty was called into action early to deny Brett Williams before Nanetti crossed for Tyrone Sterling to nod Dover ahead.

Italian midfielder Nanetti then sent a curling 20-yard effort past visiting goalkeeper Phil Smith after the break.

Ricky Miller completed the victory, flicking the ball beyond Smith.

Aldershot Town boss Andy Scott told BBC Surrey:

Andy Scott: Aldershot manager after Dover defeat

"Every time they went forward they had energy and desire and the ability to want and go and put the ball into our box.

"Our build-up play was nowhere near good enough and we lost the ball too many times.

"They were the same players that got the plaudits for playing so well against Gateshead and while they knew it was going to be a different game, we didn't deal with it at all.

"It's about the players being able to contribute and do the right thing and tonight we had plenty who weren't prepared to do that."
