Macclesfield Town A-A Dover Athletic

Macclesfield were denied the chance to close in on the National League play-off places after their clash with Dover was abandoned midway through the second half due to fog.

The Silkmen were leading 1-0 thanks to Danny Rowe's goal on the half-hour but visibility became an increasing concern at Moss Rose.

Referee Antony Coggins opted to suspend the encounter shortly after half-time before calling it off completely when conditions failed to improve.

The home side were well worth their advantage, with Danny Whitaker's header tipped over before Rowe finished a free-flowing move with aplomb in the 30th minute.

Dover had entered the clash on the back of three successive wins but offered precious little going forward before play was halted.
