Altrincham 2-2 Dover Athletic

James Lawrie's injury-time goal salvaged a draw for Altrincham against in-form Dover Athletic.

Shaun Densmore's own goal put the visitors ahead when he diverted Nicky Deverdics's cross into his own net.

But Ryan Crowther equalised with a rising shot before Dover, unbeaten in 13 matches, regained their lead with Stefan Payne's low shot from 12 yards.

However, there was late drama as in the 92nd minute, Lawrie's 25-yard effort ended up in the top corner of the net.
