Nuneaton Town 3-2 Dover Athletic

Onome Sodje
Onome Sodje was first signed by Boro boss Liam Daish at Gravesend and Northfleet in 2006

Nuneaton drew level on points with Dover but stayed just inside the relegation zone after a thrilling win.

Onome Sodje marked his Nuneaton debut by giving them the lead from a tight angle and James Armson doubled the lead with a half-volley.

Ricky Miller quickly replied with a low shot and Dover equalised soon after the break when Stefan Payne headed home.

Connor Franklin headed a 77th minute winner for Nuneaton to give them back-to-back home victories.
