Result: Southport 0-1 Dover 

Dover ended a two-game losing streak with a hard-fought win at National League rivals Southport.

The game was only three minutes old when Ricky Modeste surged into the penalty area and fired a superb effort into the top-right corner.

The visitors had a goal disallowed in the 20th minute for an apparent foul on the goalkeeper, and it was Southport’s turn to have an effort chalked off for offside in the 38th minute when John Cofie backheeled the ball into the net.

Modeste should have closed out the game in the second half when he failed to hit the target with just Ryan Crump to beat, but Dover held on to claim all three points.
