Dover Athletic squandered a two-goal lead for the second successive home game as they drew 2-2 with Chelmsford on Saturday.
 
The Whites were poised to move into fifth place in the Skrill South when they led 2-0 with 18 minutes to go but, as in their 3-2 defeat by Bishops Stortford at Crabble last month, Chris Kinnear’s side were unable to convert their two-goal advantage into three points.
 
They led 2-0 at the break through goals by Barry Cogan (17 minutes) and new striker Jeff Goulding who, playing against his former club, struck his sixth goal in three matches a minute after Cogan’s opener.
 
Dover then looked comfortably in command for most of the second half until Christian Smith pulled a goal back for Chelmsford from a 72nd-minute corner and then, in the first minute of added time, Kieron St Aimie snatched the Essex side’s equaliser following another corner.
