Macclesfield Town 1-0 Dover Athletic

A second-half header from Tyrone Marsh was enough for Macclesfield to claim a 1-0 win at home to Dover.

The Silkmen started brightly and almost took a second-minute lead but Danny Whitaker's fierce shot was pushed away by Mitch Walker.

Dover responded as Kane Richards stung the palms of Shwan Jalal and the Macc goalkeeper then managed to keep out a Josh Passley shot from close range.

The home side took the lead early in the second half when a cross from Elliott Durrell was headed home at the back post by Marsh.

Tobi Sho-Silva glanced a header wide and then brought a late save from Jalal but Dover could not find an equaliser.
