Modest matchwinner Inih Effiong was quick to acknowledge the part played by substitute Alfie Pavey in Dover’s remarkable turnaround against Fylde on Saturday, Kent Online report.

The recent signing from Havant and Waterlooville came off the bench and had a hand in both Effiong’s goals, providing the knockdown for his first before supplying the through ball for his second, three minutes into injury time.

Effiong’s double in the 2-1 win made it five goals in the last four games, and eight for the season, but the big forward said he owed much to the contribution of his 23-year-old strike partner.

Dover’s win was their first in four attempts against their National League rivals and they did it with 10 men after having Anthony Jeffrey sent off as they trailed to Danny Rowe’s 26th minute strike for the visitors.

Effiong, 27, said: “I haven’t been involved in a game like that for a long time, it’s a great feeling.

“The full-time training has helped us with our fitness, you could see that right at the end, to get the last-minute goal.

“It’s all about togetherness and you could see that when Alfie came on, he did brilliantly.

“He had two assists and that’s what it’s about, being a team.

“He’s come here, he’s not been playing but he’s come on, got two assists and worked hard for everyone else and that’s what it’s all about.

“Without him I wouldn’t have got the goals so all credit to him.”
