Macclesfield Town 1-4 Maidstone United

Maidstone made it three wins in-a-row in the National League with a thumping victory at Macclesfield.

United went ahead in the 11th minute as Zavon Hines gathered the ball outside the area and hit an unstoppable low shot into the bottom corner.

Johan ter Horst came close to doubling the lead as he headed over the bar but Maidstone did not have to wait long for a second as Alex Wynter stabbed home after the Silkmen failed to clear Jai Reason's cross in the 24th minute.

Hines' first goal was a pure strike but his second required a touch of fortune with his shot taking a big deflection and going over goalkeeper Shwan Jalal with 25 minutes remaining.

Joe Pigott's low shot squirmed under Jalal to make it 4-0 before substitute Koby Arthur's smart finish handed Macclesfield a consolation six minutes later.
