WHITES WIN AWAY AT EASTLEIGH
STRIKER Ross Lafayette returned to haunt his former club Eastleigh as Dover claimed all three points with a stunning 4-2 win in Hampshire.
Latayette, who joined Whites from Eastleigh last week, scored the second goal as boss Chris Kinnear’s men won for the second consecutive National League game following Saturday’s triumph against North Ferriby United.
It was also the second successive game Dover beaten the big-spending Spitfires at home after last October’s 5-2 thumping.
After a goalless first half, Dover opened the scoring with an embarrassing own goal from on-loan Arsenal goalkeeper Ryan Huddart seven minutes after the restart after he somehow palmed a cross from Chris Kinnear Jnr into his own net.
Lafayette’s header doubled the advantage eight minutes later to stun the home faithful at the Silverlake Stadium.
It was his second goal since moving to Crabble following his strike on Saturday.
Lafayette then had a goal disallowed for offside before Moses Emmanuel fired wide and Huddart denied Jim Stevenson.
Eastleigh pulled one back through ex-Portsmouth man Ryan Bird with nine minutes to go and five minutes later they were level after Andy Drury slotted home from close range.
But Dover were not about to be denied and restored their two-goal advantage through Jim Stevenson and substitute Ricky Miller.
Miller started from the bench following his one-game suspension for his red card against Boreham Wood.
