FC Halifax Town 1-0 Braintree Town

Jamie Jackson's injury-time goal gave Halifax Town a 1-0 win against Braintree and kept intact their hopes of reaching the Conference play-offs.

The game looked to be meandering to a stalemate, with few clear scoring opportunities during the 90 minutes.

However, in the first of four additional minutes, Jackson headed home Jack Muldoon's right-wing cross to seal a fourth successive league victory.

The late goal keeps Halifax seventh in the table, with games in hand.
