Altrincham 1-0 Macclesfield Town

Altrincham won for the first time in six matches, beating local rivals Macclesfield with a 90th-minute winner from striker James Lawrie.

The Northern Ireland international fired in a superb winner from 30 yards to lift Alty up to 21st in the table.

Earlier, he and strike partner Damian Reeves both missed first-half chances for the hosts.

At the other end, Arthur Gnahoua and Waide Fairhurst could not find a way past Stuart Coburn in the Alty goal.
