Macclesfield Town 1-1 Kidderminster Harriers

Paul Turnbull snatched an injury-time equaliser for Macclesfield against high-riding Kidderminster Harriers.

Peter Winn hit the woodwork for the hosts midway through the first half before Callum Gittings' powerful effort put the visitors ahead.

The Harriers also had a claim for a penalty waved away before the break.

Turnbull levelled for the Silkmen, turning in Danny Whitaker's corner at the near post following Connor Jennings' header back across goal.

But the Harriers had a goal disallowed just past the hour when young striker Joe Lolley ran through, only for the goal to be chalked off for a foul.

The visitors' failure to hold on cost them second place in the Conference Premier table, Steve Burr's side having been overtaken by Luton Town.


Kidderminster Harriers manager Steve Burr told BBC Hereford & Worcester:

"We were celebrating Joe Lolley's goal but, for whatever reason, the linesman has put his flag up. The referee was probably 10 yards away, the linesman is 20 yards away and he's overruled him - it's a perfectly good goal disallowed.

"He said he thought Joe Lolley had fouled their full-back. You just have to accept those decisions but I do feel for people who score goals like that and have them disallowed.

"But it just changes the whole game at the stage and to concede late on like that is very disappointing.

"The goal they did get could have gone anywhere and it's gone through a crowd of players."
