Aldershot 0-1 FC Halifax Town.

Billy Heath’s men got their first win in the league since the 23rd of September with a fantastic win at high flying Aldershot.

Scott McManus made it two goals in two games for himself as he pounced on Lewis Ward’s mistake in goal and tapped the ball into an empty net.

The Shaymen defended with great heart and passion to hold onto the 1-0 win, away from home at the EBB Stadium.

Macclesfield 4-1 Wrexham.

Scott Wilson scored a hat-trick to help Macclesfield go top of the National League in the early kick off today. Fitzpatrick completed the scoring in the 92nd minute to cement the victory.

Boden did score an equaliser in the 72nd minute but it wasn’t to be for the Welsh team.

Dover 4-0 Hartlepool.

Pinnock and bird both scored doubles as Dover stay in the top 6 with a comfortable victory. Pinnock got the scoring underway early in the 3rd minute and Bird ended late with the final one going in in the 93rd minute.

Defender, Deverdics, was sent off late on for Hartlepool as it got a lot worse for the former league 2 side.

Eastleigh 4-4 Bromley

In the highest scoring game so far, this season, Eastleigh and Bromley both struggled to defend.

McCallum scored a hat-trick for Eastleigh while Rees, Williams and Dennis scored for the away side.

Dennis scored what he must of thought would be the winner in the 87th minute for Bromley. But Eastleigh were not finished scoring, with Matthews popping up a minute later to end the scoring at 4-4.

Leyton orient 4-1 Sutton

Leyton Orient denied Sutton the chance to go back on top of the table by smashing them at home. Bonne scored twice, Harrold and Dayton got the other two for Orient and the result was confirmed.

Wright scored in the 83rd minute for Sutton but it was much too little, much too late for the London side.

Tranmere 3-0 Torquay.

Tranmere continue their fine run of form as they eased past 22nd place Torquay. Jennings scored first for the home side. Torquay looked like they were still in the game, until Cook scored a quick brace late on to win the game for the Merseyside team.

Chester 1-0 Solihull Moors.

Hannah scored a 77th minute winner to hold off bottom of the table Solihull Moors in a vital game at the foot of the National League table.

It got worse for Solihull as Carter was sent off for a late tackle after he got his second yellow in the 84th minute.

Barrow 0-1 Dagenham and Redbridge.

The away side got their fourth win in a row as Ferrier’s goal allowed them to win away from home at barrow.

Boreham Wood 1-0 Fylde.

Balanta scored the only goal of the game in the 6th minute as they held onto the lead for 84 minutes at home.

Maidenhead United 0-0 Maidstone United.

Both teams took a point away from this one as 11th and 13th place were unable to break each other down in a goalless draw.
