AFC Fylde drew 2-2 at home to Dagenham & Redbridge which moves them out of the bottom four and Dagenham into the play-off spots after five games.

Henry Jones put AFC Fylde ahead on 14 minutes before Morgan Ferrier equalised into first half injury time.

Simon Grand put AFC Fylde ahead again with five minutes of the game to go but they had to share the points as Sam Ling’s goal came four minutes into injury time for the Daggers in front of 1590 fans at Mill Farm.

Aldershot Town dropped points for the second game in a row this time with a 2-1 away defeat at Boreham Wood.

Bruno Andrade fourth goal of the season and Shaun Jeffers second goal put Boreham Wood 2-0 up at the break before fullback Cheye Alexander pulled one back six minutes after the break.

In one of the longest trips in English football, Barrow travelled to the South Coast to take on Dover Athletic at the Crabble and it was honours even between the two sides.

Jordan White’s third goal of the campaign put Barrow up 8 minutes into the second half but Ryan Bird’s second goal of the season was the equaliser on 72 minutes for Chris Kinnear’s side.

Bromley followed their impressive 6-1 home win over Leyton Orient in midweek with a 2-0 victory over Hartlepool United this afternoon with goals in both halves.

The third goal of the season for Josh Rees and Luke Wanadio’s first were enough for victory which sees Bromley in 2nd place in the Vanarama National table.

Sutton United sit proudly at the top of the table following their 3-2 away victory at Chester FC.

Louis John and Tommy Wright put them into a 2 goal lead before Craig Mahon and Lucas Dawson saw the sides level into the final minute, however Sutton weren’t to be denied and sealed all three points through Kieron Cadogan.

1906 fans witnessed Eastleigh beat Tranmere Rovers 2-0 at Ten Acres this afternoon as two second half goals were enough for them to seal all three points through Ben Williamson and Craig McAllister.

Maidenhead and Ebbsfleet shared the points with a 1-1 draw. Harry Pritchard got his first goal of the season before Ebbsfleet top goalscorer Luke Coulson was on hand to equalise for the visitors.

Maidstone United went 1-0 down at home to Wrexham with Alex Reid’s second goal of the season but they turned the game around with goals from Alex Wynter and Jack Richards. However the North Wales side were reduced to 9 men with both Manny Smith and Mark Carrington seeing red cards.

Torquay sacked their manager during the week but there was no improvement with results as they went down 3-2 at Guiseley.

Jake Lawlor put the Lions ahead on 13 minutes but Sean McGinty and Ruairi Keating scored on 39 & 40 minutes to turn the game around.

Kevan Hurst equalised on 86 minutes and it was injury time heartbreak for Torquay as Keating scored an own goal to give Guiseley all three points.

Leyton Orient put their heavy defeat in midweek behind them with a 2-0 away victory at Woking with MacAuley Bonne getting both goals.

Fraser Kerr, Jordan Burrow and Jordan Preston in front of 633 fans at the International Stadium were enough for Neil Aspin’s side Gateshead to beat Macclesfield Town.

Adam Morgan scored his first goal of the season as the Shaymen beat Solihull 1-0 for the first victory of the season.
