Macclesfield recorded their third win in a row with victory over Welling.

The Silkmen broke the deadlock thanks to a Connor Jennings strike that found the bottom corner, following good work by Chris Holroyd.

Holroyd then found the net himself to double the home side's advantage when he headed home Danny Rowe's cross.

The visitors gave themselves hope when top scorer Ross Lafayette slotted home his sixth of the season from close range but Macclesfield held on.
