FC Halifax Town dropped a place in the Vanarama National League table to 17th after today’s postponement at the MBi Shay Stadium.

In other games today, AFC Fylde shocked league leaders Macclesfield Town with a 6-0 defeat at home.

Lewis Montrose, Jack Muldoon, Sam Finley and Johnny Smith were all on target for the home side in the first half and rounded off a comprehensive victory with goals from Finley and Andy Bond in the second half.

527 attended Boreham Wood as they were defeated at home to Dover Athletic. Manny Parry put the visitors ahead before David Stephens equalised for Wood. Kadell Daniel restored the lead on 72 minutes and Femi Ilesanmi extended the lead with just five minutes remaining.

Alex Davey pulled one back to make it a nervy ending, but Dover held on to make it 6 away wins this season on the road

Bromley were 4-0 winners away at Torquay United to make it two away wins in a row. Louis Dennis, Adam Mekki, Luke Wanadio and Josh Rees were the scorers in front of a crowd of 1547 at Plainmoor.

Chester were defeated 3-1 at home to Gateshead. Former Town striker Jordan Burrow put the Heed ahead on the stroke of halftime and Patrick McLaughlin doubled the lead within a minute. Jordan Preston made it 3-0 on 52 minutes. Harry White’s third goal of the season for the home side pulled one back but was not enough to earn anything from the game.

In the early kick-off, Sutton United went ahead against Dagenham through Tommy Wright’s 10th goal of the season and Tom Bolarinwa’s third goal of the campaign. Fejiiri Okenabirhie scored with 6 minutes left for the Daggers but Sutton were able to claim all three points.

Johan Ter Horst put Maidstone ahead in the first minute in their home game with Eastleigh, but the lead didn’t last long before Ayo Obileye’s first of the afternoon for the visitors

Stuart Lewis put Maidstone back ahead but Ryan Broom and then Obileye struck in the last 15 minutes to secure a victory for the Spitfires.

Two goals from debutant Scott Quigley in the second half for Wrexham gave them victory at Victoria Ground against Hartlepool United and sees the North Wales side in 4th place with their 6th away win of the campaign.

James Norwood and Josh Ginnelly put Tranmere into a 2-0 lead at Prenton Park but Sam Barratt pulled one back for Maidenhead United. Jeff Hughes restored the 2-goal lead with 12 minutes to go and they held on for victory despite a late goal for Remy Clerima to make it nervy for the majority of the 4980 fans that saw the game. The result sees Tranmere top of the home form with 10 wins from 15 so far, this season

Kalern Thomas and two goals for Jermaine Hylton gave Solihull only their 4th home win of the season as they defeated Woking who have lost 9 so far on the road this season.
