FC Halifax Town fall to fifth in the Vanarama National League after a 2-0 defeat this afternoon to Woking FC.

League leaders Barrow lost their first game since 4th February – suffering a 2-0 home defeat against Notts County. The Magpies have now strengthened their hold in the play-offs. Barrow’s Scott Quigley was sent off after the hour mark, with the games goalless for 68 minutes until Tom Crawford opened the scoring. Callum Roberts added a second three minutes later in the 71st minute.

Yeovil Town made it back-to-back wins after their 1-0 victory away at Dover Athletic. They won the game through Marc Richards’ 47th minute strike. Yeovil remain in 3rd, with Dover still in 11th.

Ten-man Boreham Wood beat Maidenhead United away from home. Kabono Tishomingo put the visitors a goal ahead – something they managed to hold onto until full time. However, there was time for some late drama when goalkeeper Nathan Ashmore was sent off after a double booking in the 90th minute.

7th place Solihull Moors played out a goalless draw with 23rd placed AFC Fylde. That result was one of two 0-0 draws in the National League this afternoon – Wrexham and Eastleigh competed a stalemate elsewhere.

There was a score-draw in Greater Manchester as Stockport County and Barnet matched with a goal each. Simeon Akinola opened the scoring with a 9th minute penalty for Barnet. Ash Palmer provided the equaliser for the hosts just before the break. Both sides are still fighting for the play-off places.

Hartlepool United hosted Ebbsfleet United at Victoria Park with the visitors taking all three points. The winner came through former Chesterfield man Gozie Ugwu who notched up a 78th minute penalty.

Sutton United bounced back to victory after their defeat last time out against the Shaymen on Tuesday Night. Sutton’s bounce back came in a 2-0 victory against Torquay United. Robert Milsom and Will Randall providing first-half goals.

It was a close game between Aldershot and Dagenham & Redbridge The Electrical Services Stadium, it was Dag & Red who came away with the victory after a Mitch Brundle goal four minutes from time.

It was a relegation battle between Chesterfield and league’s basement side Chorley. It was Chesterfield who prevailed, taking the lead through former Shayman Tom Denton after 40 minutes. Jordan Cropper doubled the advantage on the 64th minute, before a late-consolation strike by Connor Hall 15 minutes from time.

The final game that took place this afternoon was the late kick off between Harrogate Town and Bromley. It was second place Harrogate Town who took the lead through Jack Diamond. Bromley equalised the game 5 minutes from time through a Harrogate Town own goal from Alex Bradley
