Dover Athletic 1-1 Boreham Wood
Dover recovered from going behind early on to draw 1-1 with Boreham Wood, but saw their advantage over the National League relegation zone cut back.
Danish forward Justin Shaibu had given the visitors an early lead following a swift counter attack in the fourth minute.
Dover were level in the 11th minute when captain Mitch Brundle headed in from a free-kick. Alfie Pavey then came close to swiftly adding another when he headed wide.
As the hour mark approached, Wood defender Jamal Fyfield saw his curling shot saved by Lee Worgan before at the other end, Dover forward Jamie Allen was denied from close range by goalkeeper Ryan Huddart.
Shaibu almost snatched victory in stoppage time when his header from a free-kick hit the crossbar. Dover remain 20th, but are now only two points ahead of Havant & Waterlooville.
