Matthew Barnes-Homer grabbed his fourth goal in three games as Macclesfield Town beat Altrincham to move to within five points of Conference Premier leaders Barnet.

Barnes-Homer followed up Saturday's double against Welling by heading home a Scott Barrow cross before the break.

Adriano Moke made it 2-0 from 12 yards after good work by Danny Whitaker.

And although Kyle Perry ensured a nervy finale with a tidy close-range strike, Macc claimed a fifth consecutive win.
