Macclesfield Town 2-1 Tamworth

Macclesfield Town boosted their Conference Premier play-off hopes with a 2-1 win over Tamworth.

Danny Andrew fired in a free-kick from 30 yards to open the scoring, before Kevin Thornton's effort found the top corner to level for the visitors.

But Scott Boden fired in the winner from the edge of the box to give Macclesfield back-to-back victories for the first time since February.

The result leaves Tamworth in 23rd place, eight points adrift of safety.
