Altrincham 0-0 FC Halifax Town

Halifax's chances of making the Conference play-offs suffered a blow as they were held to a draw by Altrincham.

Alty's Damien Reeves fired narrowly over early on before Marc Roberts's header clipped the bar for Halifax.

The best chance of the match fell to the home side's James Lawrie but he failed to capitalise on a one-on-one as his shot went wide of the post.

Home keeper Stuart Coburn expertly denied Adam Smith as the game ended goalless.

The result means Halifax have now drawn their last five Conference fixtures.
