Welling United 1-2 Dover Athletic

Dover moved up to fourth in the National League by beating Welling, who dropped into the relegation places.

Stefan Payne's long-range strike forced a smart save from Welling goalkeeper Michael McEntegart early on, before Ricky Modeste fired home a low effort to open the scoring for Dover.

Nicky Deverdics extended the lead when he slotted home from close range after being played through by Payne.

Sam Corne's late strike was only a consolation for Welling.
