Dover Athletic 2-0 Woking

Stefan Payne
Stefan Payne has scored five goals in 11 appearances this season

Stefan Payne scored both goals against Woking as Dover Athletic recorded successive wins for the first time this season to go fifth in the table.

Payne netted inside three minutes and just moments after Nicky Deverdics had a penalty saved following Craig Braham-Barrett's foul on Toby Ajala.

Woking keeper Jake Cole denied Richard Orlu and Ricky Miller after the break.

Joey Jones had a chance cleared off the line for the visitors before Payne beat Cole one-on-one for his second.

Woking boss Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

Hill on Dover v Woking

"We never had any quality tonight and even in the second half we had lots of periods when we were on top and it looked like we would get back in the game.

"I think their goalkeeper had one or two shots to save over ninety minutes, a lot of possession doesn't always give you goals.

"We can't be complaining and we've hit a little rock period at the moment and some of the boys' heads are down at the moment.

"There are some young players in the squad and we've gone through a fair bit with the injuries. We need to recharge. We haven't got a game in eight days and it will seem like eight weeks."
