Dover Athletic 2-3 Harrogate Town

George Thomson capped a superb comeback as promotion-chasing Harrogate Town claimed a sensational win at Dover.

Town led early on when Mark Beck's header found the corner before a frantic final 11 minutes ensued at the Crabble Athletic Ground.

The Whites looked to have turned it round with two quickfire goals as Jamie Allen prodded in from close range to level for the hosts before Jai Reason struck firmly into the top corner just two minutes later.

But Beck scored his second from a cross by substitute Aaron Williams to bring the visitors level before midfielder Thomson cut inside and smashed into the top corner to win it for Simon Weaver's side in the second minute of stoppage time.
