Dover recorded their seventh win in eight National League games with a 1-0 triumph at Tranmere.

Ricky Miller converted Sam Magri's fine right-wing cross to hand the visitors the lead just before the break.

For the hosts, Lois Maynard saw a header cleared off the line by Jamie Grimes, while Dover goalkeeper Mitch Walker denied Ben Tomlinson from range.

Andy Mangan hit the post with a good effort from 20 yards, but Dover hung on to stay third, with Tranmere now 10th.
