Dartford 1-2 FC Halifax Town

Halifax survived over 20 minutes with nine men to inflict a fourth-straight league defeat on lowly Dartford.

The home side led when Harry Crawford converted Lee Noble's corner but Danny Harris missed a chance to add a second and Matt Pearson tapped Halifax level.

Halifax saw Lois Maynard dismissed for violent conduct before the break but Scott Boden's penalty on 69 minutes moved them eighth in the table.

James Bolton was sent off for serious foul play but The Shaymen held on.

Defeat leaves Dartford 22nd in the table, seven points from safety but Southport - in 20th - have three games in hand.
