Dover Athletic 2-1 Woking

Stefan Payne scored twice as Dover damaged Woking's Conference play-off push.

Woking, who drop out of the top five, led at half-time after Yemi Odubade scored the rebound when Mitch Walker parried Kevin Betsy's shot.

Dover levelled soon after the break as Payne headed home Tom Murphy's cross.

And they won it in the 89th minute when Brian Saah fouled Ricky Modeste, earning himself a red card, and Payne scored the penalty.

Woking boss Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

Hill on Dover v Woking

"You're always very disappointed when you come here and get beaten the way you do.

"I felt we were in control at 1-0 but they scored early in the second half. They start playing the long ball game as that's their strength.

"It's very hard to deal with that. They got behind us in that way but we always knew it would be tough and we didn't have enough today.

"Dover got stronger and surprisingly they looked a lot fresher then we did. Over the ninety minutes they got the result, which was fair."
