Dover Athletic 2-0 Maidenhead United

Dover claimed only their second win of the season as Kevin Lokko and Jai Reason struck to defeat Maidenhead.

There was early frustration for the hosts as Bobby-Joe Taylor's header from Stuart Lewis' cross tantalisingly hit the inside of the post and came out.

Persistence was the key for the Whites, and towards half-time Lokko celebrated his 23rd birthday in style by heading in Mitch Brundle's in-swinging cross.

Dover breathed new life into their season after the break with a sublime second when Inih Effiong back-heeled to Taylor who squared for substitute Reason to find the top corner.

Maidenhead replacement Josh Kelly hit the post late on as the away side lost a sixth match in a row.
