Dover came from behind to halt Macclesfield's three-match winning run and keep up with the league leaders.

Danny Whitehead put Macclesfield ahead after Dover goalkeeper Mitch Walker fumbled a cross.

Stefan Payne quickly restored parity for the hosts when he fired through the legs of Shwan Jalal.

Dover, who remain in third, completed the comeback when Nicky Deverdics converted from the penalty spot, after Ricky Miller was fouled in the box.
