Ten-man Macclesfield battled back from 2-0 down to draw with Halifax.

Lee Gregory's header gave the visitors the lead with his fourth of the season before the same player set up Kevin Holsgrove to double their advantage.

The hosts pulled one back through Scott Boden's header, but team-mate Connor Jennings saw red for violent conduct just before half-time, less than five minutes after coming on as a sub.

Jack Mackreth levelled for the Silkmen with a neat finish from 12 yards.
