Welling player boss Jamie Day returned to the starting line up against Truro

Welling United have moved up to second in Blue Square Bet South thanks to a 5-1 win over Truro City.

Without injured top scorer Andy Pugh, who is about to complete a move to Blue Square Bet Premier side Cambridge, Dean Cracknell and Luis Cumbers scored with two goals each.

"Pughy's scored a lot of goals and if he goes he'll be missed so it was nice to put in a performance and score some goals like we did today," manager Jamie Day told BBC Radio Kent.

Day was encouraged by leaders Woking's shock 1-0 defeat to Staines but was reluctant to describe the title race as open.

"We're back in it," he joked, after closing the gap to twelve points. "No, Woking got beat but we're a long way off. But we'll keep having a go. If we pick up wins and they drop points we'll close the gap."

Elliot Bradbrook and Danny Harris scored twice in Dartford's 4-1 win at Havant and Waterlooville.

It was their second win of the week and manager Tony Burman said: "It was a really good performance. With respect to Havant it should have been more. Havant weren't bad, it's just that we were really good today."

Two goals from George Purcell helped keep Dover in sixth place, with a 2-0 win over Eastleigh.

Purcell told BBC Radio Kent: "That was a great team performance, we were better than them through the whole game. I'd say it was one of our best performances [of the season]."

Tonbridge drew 1-1 at Hampton while Bromley dropped into the relegation zone losing 3-1 to Basingstoke.

Elsewhere Kent's top goalscorer Kwesi Appiah scored his 33rd goal of the season in Margate's 1-0 win over Concord Rangers in the Ryman Premier Division while Folkestone missed the chance to go joint top of Ryman South as they lost a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with nine-man Burgess Hill.
