Luton have tightened their grip on top spot by extending their lead to six points with a 2-1 win away at Macclesfield. A brace from striker Andre Gray was enough to see off a valiant Macclesfield side and ensure that the Hatter’s club record of 11 away games unbeaten continues.
What made the victory even sweeter for John Still’s men was the result from the Abbey stadium where their nearest chasers slipped up at the hands of Alfreton. Cambridge missed the opportunity to keep the heat up on Luton when they were condemned to only their second defeat on home soil this season- Bradley Wood’s first half strike enough to give the visitors a 1-0 win. Alfreton are now only one point behind the U’s and will have automatic promotion in their sights
At the other end of the table there was disappointment for Tamworth as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to bottom of the table Hyde. Despite the point taking them out of the relegation zone on goal difference they will have been hoping for maximum points against a side that has only avoided defeat on six occasions this season.
Salisbury have crept into the playoff places with a 2-0 win over Woking at home. After picking up only one point from their last two outings the hosts got their playoff hopes back on track but Woking have only accumulated four points from their last five which has seen them slip to 18th in the table.
Three games fell victim to the severe rain which has hit certain areas of the country.
