Dipo Akinyemi’s second-half double gave Dulwich Hamlet a 2-0 victory against sixth-placed Chippenham Town, extending his side’s winning streak to four wins in all competitions.
The striker scored twice in the space of 17 second half minutes writes Simon Throssell.
Nathan Green’s header came back off the post early in the second half with Dominic Vose’s follow-up shot scrambled clear with the referee waving away appeals for handball.
Akinyemi broke the deadlock in the 52nd minutes when his close-range shot found its way in.
He then pirouetted 45 degrees in the Chippenham box before firmly placing the ball past the outstretched arms of the keeper.
Hamlet keeper Preston Edwards made an excellent late save from Chippenham substitute Josh Smile.
Dulwich’s win moves them up two places to 16th in National League South.
