Sutton United 2-2 Dover Athletic

Dover snatched a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser against fellow high-flyers Sutton but the draw was not enough to keep them top of the National League.

Sutton, having started the day in third, had looked to be going top themselves after fighting back from a half-time deficit to lead 2-1 heading into the last of five minutes of added time.

However, Manny Parry fired home right at the death to salvage a point for Dover, who surrendered top spot to Macclesfield.

The visitors, looking for a fifth away win in seven games, had taken a 36th-minute lead through Australian defender Giancarlo Gallifuoco but Sutton responded with two second-half goals to go ahead.

Substitute Tommy Wright levelled with a stunning 70th-minute effort just moments after coming on and Kieron Cadogan added a second 10 minutes later - only for Parry's last-gasp intervention to level things up again.
