FC Halifax Town retain their place at the top of the Vanarama National League after a second consecutive win to start off the season.

After a 2-0 win over Hartlepool, the Shaymen sit two points clear at the top as the only team to maintain their 100% record in the league.

Elsewhere, Harrogate and Solihull Moors are joint in second after comfortable 3-0 victories over Barrow and Torquay respectively.

Newly relegated Yeovil got off the mark with a 1-0 win over Eastleigh whilst Notts County were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Stockport to pick up their first point of the campaign.

A fantastic late comeback saw Wrexham throw away a two-goal lead away at Boreham Wood, but a late goal wasn’t enough for Ebbsfleet who stay bottom after a 3-1 defeat to Bromley.

Harry Beautyman scored his third goal of the season but a Simeon Akinola penalty for a second match running meant that Sutton and Barnet shared the points, and both keep a play-off spot.

Maidenhead and AFC Fylde are both hovering outside of the play-offs after draws at home to Chesterfield and Chorley respectively.
