Dover Athletic 6-1 Dartford

Tom Murphy scored twice as Dover extended their unbeaten run to 12 Conference Premier games with a thumping win over Dartford.

Nicky Deverdics' early header trickled over the line after hitting the woodwork to put the hosts ahead but Harry Crawford poked home to level.

Richard Orlu's restored the lead and Murphy's curling finish made it 3-1.

Liam Bellamy fired a fourth, and a Barry Cogan's penalty and Murphy tap-in sealed the drubbing.

Dover's win means they move up to 12th in the table, four points outside the play-off places.

Dartford remain in the relegation zone, and are eight points from safety.
