FC Halifax Town 1-2 Dover Athletic

Tobi Sho-Silva netted a last-gasp winner as Dover snatched a 2-1 victory at Halifax.

In a dramatic final seven minutes that involved all three goals, the substitute stabbed in Connor Essam's header to secure Dover a third triumph in four National League matches.

Mitch Brundle had broken the deadlock for Dover in the 87th minute as he nodded home Femi Ilesanmi's cross.

Tom Denton thought he had secured the hosts a point when he headed in Halifax's first goal of the season in added time, but former Bromley man Sho-Silva had the final say.
