LEAGUE leaders Dover Athletic continue to set the early pace in Blue Square South following a 2-0 win against Welling United on Bank Holiday Monday. Goals from Sammy Moore and Lee Browning sealed the win for Andy Hessenthaler's men who lead the table on goal difference from Basingstoke Town.

Basingstoke kept in touch with Dover with a 2-1 win over Dorchester Town but had to wait until the 85th minute for Jide Ogunbote to hit the winner.

Braintree beat Essex rivals Chelmsford City 2-1 while Woking and Eastleigh fought out a 0-0 draw in front of a crowd of 1461, the league's biggest of the day.

Jay Gasson netted a last minute winner for Havant in their game at Weymouth and two second half goals from Craig Reid and Dave Gilroy gave Newport a 2-0 win over Weston-super-Mare.

One of the most remarkable stories of the weekend was at Bromley. The club released Aaron Dalhouse and Arron Fray last week but were forced to recall them for the game against Lewes because of injuries. Dalhouse made the most of his recall to net two goals as Bromley ran out 3-0 winners against the Rooks.

There were 1-1 draws for Worcester at Bath and Maidenhead at Staines while Thurrock came from behind to earn a 2-2 draw at home to Bishop's Stortford.
