Welling United 0-2 Dover Athletic

Dover stretched their unbeaten run to 16 games as they completed a derby double over Kent rivals Welling United.

After dominating early on, the visitors wasted a number of chances from Liam Bellamy, Stefan Payne and Connor Essam.

But Dover finally took the lead after 63 minutes when defender Sean Raggett headed home from Barry Cogan's cross.

The hosts went close through Kieron St Aimie and Jake Gallagher, but Cogan clinched the points when his shot went in off the post.
