Macclesfield Town 3-2 Welling United

Macclesfield Town secured a fourth straight Conference victory as they twice came from behind to beat Welling.

Dominic Vose headed in Barney Williams' cross to put the visitors ahead, before Waide Fairhurst equalised from the spot after Darren Purse's handball.

Welling's Anthony Jeffrey was sent off for a second yellow, before Jason Williams' shot made it 2-1.

Matthew Barnes-Homer turned the game for the hosts, as his close-range finish was followed by a neat header.
