Dover Athletic 0-0 Braintree Town

Dover and Braintree played out a goalless draw in the National League.

Taylor Miles, twice, Mitch Brundle, Sam Habergham and Simeon Akinola all had efforts on goal but none had the power or accuracy to beat Mitch Walker in the Dover goal.

Dan Sparkes also found Walker in stubborn mood after Dover were reduced to 10 men with eight minutes left.

Jack Parkinson was sent off for a foul but it came too late to enhance Braintree's prospects.
