Macclesfield ended a run of three straight defeats as they left it late to beat Alfreton.

Scott Boden struck the only goal a minute from time as he met Dan Cowan's cross and his header found the back of the host's net.

John Akinde and Dan Walker had gone close earlier for the hosts while Peter Winn almost scored for the visitors.

The defeat means Alfreton finish the season without a win in eight games while Macclesfield end their poor run.
