Leyton Orient 0-1 Macclesfield Town
Macclesfield extended their lead at the top of the National League to three points with a hard-fought win at Leyton Orient.
Kick-off was delayed by 10 minutes because adverse weather conditions and Macclesfield lost goalkeeper Shwan Jalal to injury in the early stages.
David Mooney brought a decent save from Jalal's replacement Sam Ramsbottom, and the O's striker was not too far away again with a well-struck dipping effort.
But it was Macclesfield who took the lead in first-half stoppage-time through National League player of the month Scott Wilson, who headed home Elliott Durrell's cross from five yards.
Orient's Macauley Bonne saw a header tipped away in the 63rd minute and Ramsbottom then did well to keep out a James Dayton free-kick, while at the other end Durrell was denied by the legs of Charlie Grainger as Macclesfield held on.
