Whites were comprehensively beaten by Aldershot on Tuesday evening at Crabble.
Harrison Panayiotou opened the scoring with Josh Rees and Mo Bettamer netting a brace apiece.
The visitors started the game with intent and almost took the lead twice in the first ten minutes when Craig Tanner saw his first effort go wide before the same player was denied by home stopper Josh Bexon
Whites remained on the backfoot and were indebted to Steve Rigg for heading a dangerous shot off the line.
Travis Gregory’s looping shot almost caught out Shots goalkeeper Mitch Walker, but the former Dover goalkeeper was able to get back onto his line to turn the ball over for a corner.
Andy Hessenthaler’s men conceded after the half hour mark when Panayiotou tapped in from close range after Bexon parried a corner into his path.
A few minutes later, The Shots doubled their lead from a counter attack, which ended with Bettamer cutting inside and firing in from 25-yards.
Aldershot scored a third on the stroke of half-time when a poor pass set Rees free to poke home Tanner’s cross.
Rees slotted past Bexon to double his tally for the evening and Bettamer’s late deflected effort compounded a miserable night for Athletic.
Earlier in the evening, manager Hessenthaler made one change from the defeat at Stockport, with Akheem Rose replacing Bilel Hinchiri.
Dover next travel to Torquay United in the National League, kick off 3 pm.
