North Ferriby United 1-2 Dover Athletic
Dover had a scare at North Ferriby before eventually prevailing on the Villagers' turf.
Early on, Rory Watson saved Ricky Miller's penalty, denying the league's runway leading goalscorer.
But the south coast club continued to press and Aswad Thomas curled a shot on to the inside of the post.
North Ferriby hit Dover with a sucker-punch early in the second half when Curtis Bateson bent a delightful free-kick past Steve Arnold.
But midfielder Joe Healy scored his third in three games for the Whites, smashing in after a Watson punch fell conveniently into his path.
Two defenders then combined as Sam Magri teed up Thomas to strike home the Dover winner.
