Macclesfield extending their lead at the top of the Vanarama National League with a win over fellow promotion hopefuls Boreham Wood with a 2-0 victory away from home. A Tyron Marsh brace proved the difference between the sides as Macclesfield now sit within 4 points of automatic promotion.

Chester substitute Nathan Brown scored in stoppage time to give Chester a dramatic win over Bromley. The game ended 3-2 with goals from Dominic Vose and Jordan Archer giving Chester a rare win, although they look unlikely to avoid the drop.

Maidenhead United came back late on to beat Woking 2-1. Woking thought they had scored the winner in the 76th minute thanks to Jonathan Edwards, but Maidenhead fought back and scored two late goals, from Adrian Clifton and Sean Marks, taking all 3 points.

Solihull Moors gave themselves a fighting chance of avoiding the drop with a 1-0 victory over Maidstone United. The only goal of the game from Tyrone Williams pushes Solihull into 18th place, 3 points above the relegation zone.

AFC Fylde moved into 4th place with a 3-1 win over Torquay United. The Gulls went ahead early, from a penalty within the first 5 minutes of the game, but AFC Fylde fought back, with two goals in quick succession to take the lead. Tunnicliffe sealed the game in the 78th minute, with Fylde taking all 3 points home.

A thrilling game between Tranmere and Gateshead finished 4-2 in favour of Rovers. The visitors went 2-0 with 2 goals within 4 minutes, but Rovers fought back with Andy Cook scoring 4 goals to win the game for Tranmere. The win moves them into 2nd place in the league, ahead of Sutton United.
