Welling United played out a goalless draw with Dover Athletic at the Crabble on Good Friday on an afternoon with very little incident. 

In what was a fairly even first 45, the hosts enjoyed the better half-chances with Kai McKenzie-Lyle getting behind Myles Judd’s prodded effort, before having his palms stung by a rasping Lee Martin drive and getting down to keep out Freddie Oliver’s tame shot from distance. 

In truth, neither side staked much of a claim for the lead and the two sides headed for the dressing room at the break goalless. 

It was the hosts who came out looking slightly stronger in the second half as they enjoyed plenty of possession in the early exchanges, although clear-cut chances remained hard to come by. 

Martin blazed a free-kick over for the Whites, while Joshua Ajayi showed good skill in the box to flick the ball up, spin and see a volley deflect wide.

At the other end, Stuart Nelson’s goal continued to live a charmed life with the Wings struggling to create in the final third. 

Warren Feeney’s men did, however, have a huge shout for a penalty when Ade Azeez’s shot appeared to have hit an outstretched hand in the box, but the referee waved the appeals away.

Although the visitors didn’t manage to register a shot on target throughout the afternoon, a draw was probably a fair result as Welling kicked off the Easter weekend by taking a point back down the A2.
