Dover Athletic 4-1 Lincoln City

Stefan Payne
Stefan Payne has now scored 15 goals this season

Dover Athletic moved up to fourth in the National League as Stefan Payne and Ricky Miller both scored twice to end Lincoln's six-game unbeaten run.

Payne curled in an early opener past Paul Farman and the hosts seized control in a frantic second half.

Sam Magri's pass teed up Ricky Miller to make it 2-0 and Payne added his second after good work by Tom Murphy.

Jack Muldoon gave the Imps hope after a goalmouth scramble, but Miller wrapped up victory from close range.
