Macclesfield Town 2-0 Dartford

Lee Bell
Lee Bell is currently on loan at Macclesfield from Burton Albion

Macclesfield kept their play-off ambitions on track by beating already-relegated Dartford as both sides finished with 10 men.

Lee Bell opened the scoring, firing through a crowded penalty area to find the bottom corner.

Thierry Audel made sure of the result when he was allowed to poke in a loose ball from 12 yards.

Macclesfield's George Pilkington was later sent off, before Nathan Green was given a second yellow for a bad tackle.

Macc remain a point behind Forest Green, in the final play-off place, heading into the final day of the Conference season.
