Dover Athletic 4-0 Hartlepool United
Mitch Pinnock and Ryan Bird both grabbed braces as fourth-placed Dover brushed 10-man Hartlepool aside.
Pinnock got the Whites' afternoon off to the ideal start with a driven low finish following Anthony Jeffrey's lay-off in the third minute.
Manny Parry also headed against the post, five minutes before Pinnock once again converted a Jeffrey pass for 2-0.
Hartlepool stemmed the flow in the second half but went three behind when Bird headed in substitute Kadell Daniel's cross.
Craig Harrison's men knew it was not their day when Carl Magnay's effort was saved by Mitch Walker and Liam Donnelly hit the post from the follow-up.
Bird completed the demolition late on from Pinnock's cross after Pools had Nicky Deverdics sent off.
