Torquay United 0-2 Dover Athletic
Dover extended their unbeaten run to five games with a 2-0 win at National League bottom club Torquay.
Paul Lewis, on loan from Cambridge, opened the scoring in the sixth minute, heading home Mitch Pinnock's cross for his first goal of the season.
Lewis was a threat throughout the first half, having a second goal disallowed for offside, before Pinnock came close to doubling Dover's lead when his volley crashed off the crossbar.
But Dover got their second in the 64th minute when a Ryan Bird header from a Jamie Allen cross went in off the bar.
Striker Jamie Reid was unable to pull a consolation goal back for Torquay late on when he fired into the side netting.
