Dover Athletic 1-2 Aldershot Town

Nicke Kabamba's debut goal lifted Aldershot to a win at Dover which kept the pressure on National League leaders Macclesfield.

Kabamba came off the bench on the hour mark and seven minutes later scored his first match-winner for the Shots.

Fellow debutant Lewis Kinsella was involved in the build-up, playing in Bobby-Joe Taylor whose low cross was spilt by Mitch Walker, allowing Kabamba to finish.

Aldershot had taken the lead and then been pegged back in an explosive end to the first half.

Walker was again to blame for the visitors' opener, dropping a high Cheye Alexander cross at the feet of Jim Kellerman, who could not miss.

But seconds later, Dover were level as Mitchell Pinnock's free-kick was headed home by Manny Parry in time added on.

Dover pushed forward in search of an equaliser late on but almost left the door open at the back as Femi Ilesanmi was needed to clear the ball off the line and deny Bernard Mensah with six minutes left.
