Long journey yields nothing

Weston finished a well-beaten side in the only Blue Square Bet South game of the day.

Under pressure from the start, Weston gave Dover's Ricky Modeste too much space wide on the right and his speed and trickery kept the visitors pinned in their own half.

Dover took the lead on five minutes when Weston goalkeeper Lloyd Irish brought Modeste down and Ben May scored from the penalty spot.

May had a strong effort blocked by Irish, while Jamie Price headed off the line from Billy Bricknell's effort.

Weston's only shot of the half was a free-kick by Ashley Kington, which goalkeeper Mitch Walker punched away.

Weston came more into the game in the second half and should have equalised on 54 minutes, but Chas Hemmings and Ben Kirk missed Ross Stearn's low cross.

On 79 minutes, Bricknell left the Weston defence floundering as he cut in from the left before beating Irish.

The home side got their third on 81 minutes when Modeste was rewarded for his efforts when he scored with a shot-cum-cross.

Substitute Nabi Diallo got Weston's consolation goal five minutes from time with a header from Dayle Grubb's corner kick, but it was too little, too late.
