Maidenhead United 0-0 FC Halifax Town

Mid-table rivals Maidenhead and Halifax played out a goalless draw at York Road.

Maidenhead started strongly and twice came close in the opening four minutes with Harry Pritchard and Ryan Upward both having chances.

United then hit the crossbar in the eighth minute when Sean Marks powered a header against the frame of the goal, and the same player drew a good save from Sam Johnson on the half-hour mark.

The home side could not make their dominance count, though, and Halifax came back into the game with Matty Brown being denied by a fine save from Carl Pentney in the 56th minute before the visitors had a goal disallowed.

Both sides pushed for a decider in the closing stages but neither could break the deadlock as their respective winless runs continued.
