Macclesfield Town 1-0 North Ferriby United

Struggling North Ferriby gave 10-man Macclesfield a huge scare at Moss Rose, but the home side prevailed.

The visitors started the brighter but Danny Whitaker put Macclesfield ahead from the penalty spot midway through the first half, after Mark Gray fouled Chris Holroyd in the box.

John McCombe, however, undermined his side's lead when he committed a professional foul on Reece Thompson just outside the area and was sent off.

North Ferriby began to dominate play but showed why they were the lowest scorers in the league with just six all season, although they went close in the second half as Kyle Wootton hit the woodwork.
