Eastleigh 0-1 Macclesfield Town

Macclesfield moved within three points of the National League play-off spots after recording a 1-0 victory over Eastleigh.

The visitors started brightly and broke the deadlock in the seventh minute when Rhys Browne found the bottom corner of Ryan Clarke's net.

The game became more open as the first half wore on, with both sides creating a number of chances, but it remained 1-0 at the break.

Macclesfield had the ball in the net once again seven minutes after the interval but the flag was up.

Eastleigh nearly equalised in the 70th minute but Ayo Obileye's header clattered against a post.
