Dover Athletic 2-1 Hartlepool United

Dover moved off the bottom of the National League after securing back-to-back home wins with victory over Hartlepool.

Pools goalkeeper Scott Leach had already denied Bobby-Joe Taylor and Jamie Allen before he was beaten by Bedsente Gomis.

Inih Effiong doubled Dover's lead before half-time, firing in from close range from Josh Debayo's deflected cross.

Gomis and Effiong headed good chances over for Dover early in the second half, while Marcus Dinanga nodded wide at the other end.

Josh Hawkes did reduce the deficit late on with Pools' first away goal for 470 minutes, but it proved in vain as they suffered a fifth successive league defeat.
