Dover Athletic 5-0 Nuneaton Town

Stefan Payne scored twice as Dover enjoyed their biggest win of the season and inflicted struggling Nuneaton's third straight defeat.

Tom Murphy headed the opener from Stefan Payne's cross and Connor Essam volleyed the second two minutes later.

Payne tackled Nuneaton keeper James Hogarth-Wren on the touchline and crossed for Nicky Deverdics to score the third before the break.

Payne snapped up a rebound for the fourth and hit the fifth from 12 yards.

Dover's fifth Conference game without defeat takes them up to 15th, while Nuneaton remain second from bottom with only four wins all season.
