Dover Athletic 4-0 Chester

Dover got back to winning ways by thrashing National League strugglers Chester at the Crabble.

Giancarlo Gallifuoco nodded home Mitch Brundle's corner after 22 minutes to open the scoring, before Mitch Pinnock weaved his way around Kingsley James and fired low past Chester goalkeeper Alex Lynch to make it comfortable for the hosts after 62 minutes.

Nortei Nortey added gloss to the scoreline with 21 minutes remaining, before Brundle made it 4-0 after 83 minutes.

The victory takes Dover up to second in the National League as they bounced back from defeat to Boreham Wood in midweek.

Chester remain 21st having suffered their fifth defeat already this season.
