FC Halifax Town 5-1 Salisbury City

Lee Gregory scored a hat-trick against Salisbury to help Halifax end their six-game winless run.

The striker met a Josh Wilson cross to open the scoring inside two minutes, with Lois Maynard prodding home to make it 2-0 before the break.

Gregory pounced on a rebound for his second and then scored from the penalty spot after being felled by Ryan Brett.

Jamie White slotted a consolation goal, before Wilson made it 5-1 from a tight angle in stoppage time.
