FC Halifax Town sit in 16th in the Vanarama National League following the 1-1 draw away to Dagenham & Redbridge.

Town went down to 10 men 35 minutes in and despite Jack Munns opening the scoring, Nathan Clarke was able to equalise 10 minutes from time. Ben Nunn was also given his marching orders one minute from time, but it wasn’t enough to affect the result.

A shock result as an Andrew Kiwomya double was enough to secure Chesterfield’s fourth league win over the season. The victims were free-spending Salford City who were unable to continue their impressive form near the top of the table.

Boreham Wood’s 1-0 win over Leyton Orient wasn’t enough to force the London side off top spot. A fourth minute goal from Olufemi Ilesanmi was enough to give Boreham Wood three points which sees them climb to 11th.

Maidstone United continued their slide down the table as they fell to Barrow after a Tyler Smith netted 30 minutes from time. Despite a second yellow for Germaine Agustien, Maidstone were unable to rectify their poor form.

Dover Athletic pulled off a good result as they held on to beat AFC Fylde 2-1. Danny Rowe netted his 15th of the season but it wasn’t enough. With Anthony Jeffrey being sent off with 26 minutes still to play, the game appeared over. But goals from Inih Effiong saw a memorable result from the Southern side.

Danny Kedwell netted the only goal as Ebbsfleet defeated Barnet at home. The result sees Ebbsfleet sit 10th with Barnet only five places behind. A narrow win for Hartlepool keeps Maidenhead in the relegation zone, 2 points from safety.

Gateshead continue their push for play-offs with a 2-0 win over Kent side Bromley. Goals forΒ Luke Armstrong and Fraser Kerr was enough to keep Gateshead in the bottom play-off spot.

Harrogate Town recorded an emphatic win over Aldershot as it finished 4-1. Adam McDonnell gave Aldershot the lead in the 14th minute but a Warren Burrell hat-trick confirmed Harrogate’s win before Jonathan Muldoon netted in the 90th minute to round the game off.

Havant & Waterlooville continued their ascension out of the relegation zone with a 2-1 win over bottom side Braintree Town. Alfie Rutherford’s brace was enough to give Havant a much needed three points.

Sutton United and Solihull Moors shared the spoils in a 2-2 draw at Sutton. Twice Solihull took the lead through Jamey Osborne, but Sutton equalised both times. Wayne Brown got the first equaliser and Kenny Davis closed the scoring in the 74th minute.

Wrexham recorded a comfortable win over Eastleigh to continue their push for promotion. James Jennings opened the scoring after two minutes, with Robert Grant getting the second on 58 minutes. The result sees Wrexham sit in fourth, just 4 points off top.
