Waide Fairhurst
Waide Fairhurst has played for six different teams during his career including Lincoln and Shrewsbury

Macclesfield moved into the play-off places as a goal in each half gave them victory over Alfreton Town and extended their unbeaten run to eight games.

Danny Whitaker fired wide before Scott Barrow put Macclesfield ahead as he beat three Alfreton players to score.

Karl Hawley's low shot was well saved by Rhys Taylor at the other end.

Matthew Barnes-Homer twice went close for the hosts, before Waide Fairhurst secured the win when he reacted first to a loose ball in the box.
