Maidstone United 2-2 Dover Athletic
Joe Anderson rescued a point late on as Maidstone replicated their 2-2 Boxing Day draw with Kent rivals Dover at Gallagher Stadium.
Promotion contenders Dover had the better of the first-half chances and made their pressure count just before the half-hour mark as Femi Ilesanmi's long-range screamer picked out the top corner to hand his side the lead at the break.
The Stones started the second half brighter and Jamar Loza fired wide on the hour, while team-mate Tom Wraight made his effort count nine minutes later as he claimed a free header in the box and found the net from six yards.
Nortei Nortey looked to have handed Dover all three points as he went on a solo run before his powerful shot deflected in off the post for his fifth goal this season after 76 minutes, but Anderson struck back for the home side at the death for a share of the points.
