Nuneaton Town 1-1 Macclesfield Town

Adam Dawson scored a last-gasp equaliser to rescue a point for Nuneaton at home to Macclesfield.

The Silkmen eventually broke the deadlock when Paul Turnbull's free-kick gave them a 50th-minute lead.

But although Dawson converted a Dane Griffiths assist two minutes into injury time to make it three home games without defeat for Nuneaton, they drop to second bottom.

Macclesfield, meanwhile, made it five games unbeaten in the league.
