Eastleigh and Gateshead have extended their unbeaten records after playing out a 2-2 draw at the Silverlake Stadium, while Kidderminster Harriers join them on seven points after edging to a 1-0 win against Dartford.

Macclesfield Town's 100% start came to an end as they were held to a goalless draw by Woking, but Wrexham made it two wins from two with a 1-0 triumph against Nuneaton Town thanks to Louis Moult's early opener.
