Macclesfield Town 2-1 Woking

Paul Turnbull's stunning late strike gave Macclesfield their third win in four league games which took them level on points with third-placed Woking.

The visitors looked as though they had done enough to earn a draw thanks to a 51st-minute equaliser from Dean Morgan.

The forward fired home an angled shot to cancel out a first-half goal from Matthew Barnes-Homer, who pounced on keeper Ross Worner's parry to score.

But with a couple of minutes to go, Turnbull thumped home a 20-yard winner.

Hill on Macclesfield v Woking

Woking boss Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

"You're going into injury time one-each and you think it's two points dropped because we had enough chances in the second half to win the game.

"I've got no complaints about the effort or what we've done over the 90 minutes and I think we showed why we're a team which is going in the right direction and one or two things went their way."
