Welling United 0-0 Macclesfield Town

Macclesfield extended their unbeaten league run to seven games and moved into fifth with a draw at Welling.

Goalkeeper Rhys Taylor was in excellent form for the Silkmen and continually frustrated the hosts' attack.

Taylor saved Aristide Bassele's goal-bound header from a corner before also denying Jamal Fyfield and Zach Fagan to preserve his clean sheet.

The draw means that Welling have now gone four league games without a win and sit 21st in the Conference.
