Tyrone Marsh scored for Torquay United but was later sent off as they drew 1-1 with Altrincham, with the equaliser coming from Jake Moult.

Kidderminster Harriers left it late to beat Woking 1-0 at home, and it was Jordan Murphy's 81st-minute goal that gave the home side their first win of the season.

Kingsley James gave Halifax Town the lead against Eastleigh, before goals from Andy Drury and Josh Payne gave the home side the points.

Gateshead got the best of a five-goal thriller against Boreham Wood to move to within a point of the playoff places, while Anthony Dudley scored twice as Guiseley beat Welling United 2-0 at home.
