Tamworth 1-0 Macclesfield Town

Lateef Elford-Alliyu proved the difference as Tamworth claimed a narrow victory over in-form Macclesfield.

The hosts took the lead early in the first half when Elford-Alliyu powered an impressive long-range effort that flew in via the right-hand post.

Macclesfield's Chris Holroyd saw his header saved by keeper Cameron Belford, who also kept out Danny Whitaker.

The visitors had gone into the match on the back of three successive wins, but Tamworth held on for the points.
