FC Halifax Town remain 4th in the Vanarama National League following the 2-2 draw with Harrogate Town. Goals from Liam McAlinden and Cameron King gave Town a point following a late equaliser from Harrogate.

The Shaymen are just three points off league leaders Barrow, with the Bluebirds being held to a 2-2 draw at home to Chorley. Barrow coming from 2-0 down to get a point.

Elsewhere, Chesterfield were hammered 5-1 at home to Hartlepool. The Pools climb to 10th in the league whilst the heavy defeat sees Chesterfield fall into the relegation zone. The Spireites are now level on points with Sutton United in 21st.

Sutton came from behind to claim a 2-1 win away to Dagenham & Redbridge. Goals from Craig Eastmond and Tommy Wright gave the visitors all three points.

Ebbsfleet United came away on the end of heavy defeat as they were comprehensively beaten at Barnet. A goal in each half from Ebbsfleet wasn’t enough to give them anything as they came away empty handed.

Maidenhead climbed to 17th as they beat Dover Athletic in a thrilling encounter. Five goals in the first half was a sign of things to come as Maidenhead came out 4-3 winners despite Joe Ellul’s late red card.

Torquay slipped out of the playoffs as they fell to a 3-2 defeat away to Eastleigh. Three first half goals proved too much for Torquay to overcome despite a late comeback.

An added time red card and goal meant Notts County could only manage a 2-2 draw against Boreham Wood. Two Kyle Wootton goals gave the midland side a point despite Connell Rawlinson seeing red.

Solihull Moors climbed to second in the league following a 4-1 dismantling of Stockport County. A first half goal for Stockport was the only joy they got as Solihull put four past them in the second half to take all three points.

A 74th minute goal from Jake Hyde gave Woking all three points as they hosted Bromley. Goals from Dave Tarpey and Hyde cancelled out Luke Coulson’s first half strike as they failed to get an equaliser.

AFC Fylde managed a 1-0 win away to Wrexham as a goal from Danny Philliskirk pushed Fylde up to 18th place, whilst Wrexham fall to 22nd.

Finally, Yeovil came from behind twice to claim a point at home to Aldershot. A Rhys Murphy penalty ensured the Somerset side took a point.
