Dover Athletic 0-0 Tranmere Rovers

Play-off hopefuls Tranmere Rovers and Dover Athletic played out a drab 0-0 draw in the National League.

Sean Raggett had the chance to put the home side ahead in the first half but he volleyed over from close range.

The game failed to improve after the break and the most excitement came when referee Dean Treleaven limped off with an injury.

Lois Maynard had the best chance of the second half but his late effort was comfortable for Dover's Mitch Walker.
