Lee Gregory scored for the third successive match as Halifax overcame Dartford in the Conference Premier.

Gregory could have given Town an early lead after Marc Roberts' lofty pass, but he could not get the crucial touch.

Town keeper Matt Glennon was tested just before half-time, but he held onto Kenny Clark's strike.

Halifax went ahead after the break through Gregory's right-footed shot and a fumble from Alan Julian allowed Kevin Holsgrove to wrap up the victory.

Dartford manager Tony Burman told BBC Radio Kent:

Post-match: Dartford manager Burman

"This is a difficult place to come. I felt we handled their threat very well in the first half and probably had the best chance of the game.

"I'm really disappointed because on Tuesday we gave Aldershot a couple of goals and today we committed hari-kari.

"You hope it changes and things go in for you. The season's only a week old and we've got three points more than we had last season."
