Dover Athletic 2-2 Torquay United

Tyrone Sterling's injury-time equaliser salvaged a point for Dover against Torquay in the Conference.

Sterling finished off a goalmouth scramble to extend the Whites' unbeaten run to seven league games.

Krystian Pearce had put in Luke Young's corner to give Torquay the lead, before Connor Essam headed in a leveller.

Ash Yeoman was on the end of a Gulls counter to restore the lead, only for Sterling to deny them three points deep into injury time.
