Dover Athletic 2-1 Altrincham

Nicky Deverdics scored a brace as Dover beat Altrincham to move up into tenth in the Conference table.

Deverdics opened the scoring with a fierce strike from just inside the penalty area, while Stefan Payne's shot went just over the bar shortly after.

Altrincham substitute Damian Reeves sent a header narrowly wide, before Luca Havern nodded in the equaliser after a scramble in the Dover box.

But Deverdics' late headed effort secured three points for the home side.
