There was a total of four games in the National League last night and the first goal came after just four minutes when Boreham Wood’s Morgan Ferrier put his side ahead against Maidenhead United. However, Maidenhead’s Moses Emmanuel put the score level 25 minutes later to salvage a draw.

Gateshead played host to Solihull Moors this evening and there was an early card as winger, Rees Greenwood managed to play just 11 minutes before seeing red for elbowing Darren Carter. Solihull used the extra man to their advantage when Alex Reid found the back of the net in the 32nd minute.

Gateshead got one back with Patrick McLaughlin scoring in the 68th minute. However, there was late drama with the visiting side grabbing what was believed to be a winner in the 87th minute as substitute, Chris Lait scored within seconds of being on the field. A 94th minute, Liam Daly own goal changed everything as Gateshead were lucky to get a draw.

Torquay United travelled to Leyton Orient and managed to get the first goal of the game through Elliott Romain who headed home Brett Williams’ cross just after the half an hour mark. This proved to be the only goal and United went home with three points to their name.

Halifax were unlucky to concede in the way they did as Charlee Adams fired a shot from 35-yards, it was deflected which caused trouble from Johnson who could do nothing but watch it fly over him. Town didn’t give up, coming out in the second half as the stronger side, with chance after chance, Halifax finally equalised through a Michael Cheek own goal. Not long after on-loan striker Mike Fondop-Talom made it 2-1 before celebrating with the fans, receiving a yellow for his actions. This secured Jamie Fullarton another three points following Saturday’s 3-1 win away to Woking.
