Macclesfield Town 1-2 Eastleigh

Mark Yeates scored twice as Eastleigh recorded a surprise 2-1 National League win at high-flying Macclesfield.

Macclesfield were enjoying their best spell of the first half when Yeates pounced on an error by goalkeeper Shwan Jalal to tuck home on the stroke of half-time.

Yeates made it a double with a low finish five minutes after the restart, then almost laid on a third for Callum Howe as Eastleigh hit Macclesfield on the break.

Visiting goalkeeper Ross Flitney had frustrated Macclesfield with a string of fine saves but he was denied a clean sheet in the final minute by Danny Whitehead.
